I haven't tried that specifically, but it may just be something that
you normally need to do as root. Try putting "sudo" in front of the
command you're using now. It will prompt you for your password before
it does anything.

If you're trying to do it via a GUI, I don't have a clue. (man, I
never thought I'd say that). :)
