The 'naughty' way to do it is to do a sudo /opt/azureus/azureus which 
will give write permissions for the directories azureus needs to access. 
Then get the hell off the network (i.e. shut down azureus), because I 
can't see that running a p2p app as root (or as sudo) can be a good thing.

I guess the 'right' way is to change the permissions on the directory or 
create an appropriate user group with you in it.

This assumes that your azureus install is in /opt/azureus
