Looks like the user running mfdb doesn't have access to the /tmp 
directory on the filesystem or something is messing with mfdb's temp 

Also, as a first step, make sure you have wget 1.10+ installed (only 
required for DataDirect users, so others please don't "correct" me on 
this one) or mfdb will fail (although I don't remember the error 
message, so I'm not willing to say that's the cause of this problem).
