5.3.1. Installation of Binutils

Hello all,

I am trying my hand at creating my own LFS installation but seem to have 
stumbled across a problem.  When I type in:

	mkdir -v ../binutils-build
	cd ../binutils-build

as directed by the manual I am told

    mkdir: cannot create directory './binutils-build': Permission denied

I realise the second line of this message shows the user I am logged in 
as and the current working directory but don't know why I cannot create 
the directory as I have followed everything to the letter up to this point.

What must I do to resolve this?

Thanks in advance,
