You just have to let your user to write into device. The common solution 
in such cases is to give write permissions to the group and put user into 
this group. I've put myself into operator group and have these lines in 
the /etc/devices.conf file:

pass*   root:operator   660     # MAKEDEV(8) default is 600
cd*     root:operator   660
xpt*    root:operator   660
