You probably do not have permission to write to that directory (and you
need write permission to install a package). I assume you are on Unix?
Either ask your system administrator to install it for you or install it
into a directory where you have permission. For example, I make a
subdirectory called "R-local" in my home directory for installing my own
packages. Look at ?Startup to see how you can get R to recognize your
local package directory.
