[Numpy-discussion] Failure to install

I am attempting to install numarray on my Mac OX 10.3, and I  
successfully downloaded it.  Since I am attempting to use this with  
Cantera, I followed their recommendations as to installing which  
included typing:

python setup.py install

when I was in the numarray directory.  When I executed this, I received  
the following error message:
error: could not create  
python2.3/numarray': Permission denied

I have tried to unlock this folder with little to no luck (I must  
confess I am not the most computer savvy person ever).  If anyone could  
give me some advice as to how to get this to install properly, I'd  
appreciate it!  If it does not need to be in this folder, is there  
anyway to bypass this?

Thanks so much!
