Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

I recently bought an Acer Aspire One and have been trying to get my 3 mobile broadband modem to work with it.

The dongle (ZTE MF622) is seen as a mass-storage device. I've surfed the web and found a solution:

However, I can't get over a few basic problems.

I need to be able to create a new file in the /etc/udev/rules.d/ directory, but when I try to do this it comes back with the error "Can't open file to write".

I'm pretty sure that this is something to do with not having root priviliges. However, I have no clue as to how to set this up.

Any help greatly appreciated. ®
