Running J2EE as non-root user

I've just installed J2ee 1.3.1 on my Suse Linux 9 system, to use with the Head First EJB book (great book so far).
I can't start j2ee as a normal user - I have to start it as root, otherwise I get a lengthy error starting with:
Cannot write the seed file for fast startup, the next startup will be slow
and then a whole bunch of permission problems. So the question is, what are the permissions supposed to be in the j2ee directories, and why aren't they set properly when you unzip the .tar.gz package from SUN? I want to have j2ee installed in /usr/local/j2ee, but I want all users to be able to use it.
Any help? Please?
I agree. Here's the link:
