option 1: change to a user who does have permission
option 2: install tomcat somewhere your user has permission (see below)
option 3: read a linux manual*

it sounds alarmingly like you've installed an RPM or distribution of
some sort.  we generally don't recommend that, instead get a freshly
built, up to date release from and unpack it in a
suitable directory.


* if you screwed a distribution by changing a permission on a dir I'd be
surprised, but then if you did that you ought to be doing a lot more
reading before you try again...
