Non-admin setup?

It seems that requires admin privileges to the install directory.

What am I doing wrongly? Is there a way to run it without (Using Sugar-on-a-Stick spin of Fedora 16.)

[david1@brownsea ~]$ virtualenv  pyCaveExplorer
New python executable in pyCaveExplorer/bin/python
Installing setuptools.............done.
Installing pip...............done.
[david1@brownsea ~]$ cd pyCaveExplorer/
[david1@brownsea pyCaveExplorer]$ python develop
running develop
