Trying to deploy the agent software from EM to a Linux host running Oracle Enterprise Linux version 5.8 I am failing one of the pre-requisite checks indicating that the root / is not owned by the root. From the install log

INFO: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INFO: Checking AgentBaseDirCheck
This is a prerequisite condition to test whether the agent base directory is owned by the install user, all the parent directories are owned by either the install user or root user and the root directory (that is '/') is owned by root user.
INFO: The value of AGENT_BASE_DIR is:/opt/EM_Agent.
INFO: The value of ORACLE_HOME is:/opt/EM_Agent/ADATMP_2012-12-10_09-37-31-AM/prereq_stage/core/12.1.0.2.0
INFO: The command that is getting executed as part of this prereq is:/opt/EM_Agent/ADATMP_2012-12-10_09-37-31-AM/prereq_stage/core/12.1.0.2.0/perl/bin/perl /opt/EM_Agent/ADATMP_2012-12-10_09-37-31-AM/prereq_stage/core/12.1.0.2.0/sysman/install/CheckDirPermission.pl /opt/EM_Agent
INFO: Checking for proper ownership on the agent base directory.
INFO: Checks whether the agent base directory is owned by the agent user oracle and that its parent directory is owned by either the agent user or root.

INFO: Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<<

INFO: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not sure how the / can not be owned by root.

Any help would be appreciated.
