get gromacs 4.04

Confirm if you changed the permissions correctly and can write  
anywhere in /usr/local/

Are you doing this as 'root'  or super user (sudo) ? Because if you  
are just a regular user, will won't be able to change the permissions  
in /usr/local/. So, configure gmx to be installed in your local dir.

./configure --prefix=/global/home/pirzadeh/gmx404
