Make the directory that contains where your user is trying to create a
new subdirectory writable by group wheel.  Either that, or teach your
user to use su(1) or sudo(1) so they can mkdir as root.  (Adding users
to group wheel so they are permitted to run su(1) is a BSD-ism, and is
the usual reason for adding anyone to wheel.)

	Cheers,
