Thank you all for the help. I work on Mac OS X, so all suggestions are viable.

So how can I save the file provided that I can have superuser rights?

Use 'sudo chmod ... <the directory>' or 'sudo chown ... <the directory>' that you're allowed afterwards to save a file in that directory.

I was hoping I could do it from within emacs, so the above and 'sudo emacs file' (as suggested by whd) are not really a solution to my problem. I had a quick glance at tramp (as suggested by Sebastian P. Luque and Tim X) and it seems to be to complicated for my simple demands, but I will have a closer look soon.

Or save it to your home directory and move it afterwards as root/ with sudo.

This seems to be the easiest solution indeed and I already did this as a quick way around, but I hoped for a more elegant method. Thanks for help.
