Problem installing Network Manager.

Forums: 

I am new to installing programs and might just be missing something obvious. I am attempting to install Network Manager on Debian 2.6.26. When I do
./confiigure
I get
Permission Denied
so I am attempting to change the ownership to root with
chown root/
then getting
No such file or directory
when I do
ls
I get
No such file or directory
but then it proceeds to list the files in the directory.
