permissions issue

We are trying to run a program on a Red Hat ES3 machine that works fine under root user but not as any other user. I believe its getting denied access to the USB ports (which this program needs), Does anyone know how i can open up access to the USB ports on a machine to all users.

Thanks,
Frank
