Question Install into root account instead of normal user account

I have a normal user account and when I want to install something from my normal user account it installs in the root account instead. How do I config my normal account to install the packages into the normal account ? I installed my wireless assistant and it only appears in the root account but not the normal account, but I want it to appear in the normal account. Thanks

I don't remember seeing install programs in normal accounts. To me, I see it all install in root priv. When done, the application can me use for all normal users on that box.

Look at yum for an example, yum is root priv. It installed overnights and my normal users can use the applications.

What program are you trying to install?
