[Haskell-cafe] Trouble with Cabal

Thanks to all who responded about the benefits of using Cabal. After
trying out Bulat's Streams library, I thought I would download
ByteString (aka FPS) to compare the wc demos. To compile something using
Streams, I need to use a -i flag (thanks Bulat). When I followed the
README that comes with ByteString, I get this:

%  ./Setup.hs install
Installing: /f/g/lib/fps-0.7 & /f/g/bin fps-0.7...
*** Exception: /f: createDirectory: permission denied (Permission

I don't have root on this machine, and it's not obvious (to me) how to
specify that everything should be installed locally. Any suggestions?
