I'd say, for running tests with a pseudo-cluster on a single machine it would
be easiest for you to extract the archive somewhere in your home directory, as
your regular user.  
If you extracted the archive as root into /usr/local, then your regular user
is probably missing read and execute permissions on various files and
directories.  With the default configuration, the hadoop user also needs to
have write permission to the logs directory.

I'd say it seems reasonable to delay those concerns for when you'll run on
more than one machine.
