ok got it sorted. i'm an idiot. thanks everyone. turns out i was editing the config file in gedit and not saving the changes. seems as though the "tun0" change fixed it.
i proved that by running
[root@cjohnson openvpn]# openvpn --rmtun --dev tap0
Sun Jan 17 22:00:18 2010 TUN/TAP device tap0 opened
Sun Jan 17 22:00:18 2010 Persist state set to: OFF

[root@cjohnson openvpn]# more roadwarrior.conf

p.s. can you add:
to the client conf, and then paste the log file after it runs here? i
have a sneaking suspicion that it's quite possibly another issue that's
not entirely related to permissions at all, despite the error message.
OH! and yum info openvpn would be a HUGE help, too
issue and maybe develop a fix/solution for it.
