Security question (probably obvious)

OK, I'm tired right now and probably shouldn't be about to work on the kernel.

My kernel sources are in /usr/src/linux-2.4.20.SuSE. I've created a group
kdev, and run

chgrp -R kdev /usr/src/linux-2.4.20.SuSE

ls -l confirms that this is the group. My userid is a member of kdev. I have
also run

chmod -R g+w /usr/src/linux-2.4.20.SuSE

and ls -l confirms that the permissions of the directory are drwxrwxr-x. The
files in the directory have the permissions -rw-rw-r--

When I try "cp /boot/linuz.config /usr/src/linux-2.4.20.SuSE/.config" I'm
getting a "permission denied" error.

While a nap would probably let me see this, I need to get this moving. Would
someone be so kind as to point out my obvious error?
