Wrong.  Unless you're also running your web-server as root (which you also 
shouldn't do), the cgi, which will be running as the web-server user, won't 
have access to the files created by root.  Just follow the instructions, 
and run the remstats stuff as a specific user and make sure you tell 
configure which is your web-server group.
