INSTALL QUESTION: Who should own /usr/inferno?

Hi, I installed today inferno in my SGI machine and hope to install it tonight at home in my Linux. When trying to make a user directory with the command `mkdir /usr/angel' the inferno shell return an error indicating lack of permission to write to the underlying filesystem. This brought up the question: What permission should I give to /usr/inferno so that not only root but any user in our system can play with inferno? I am tempted to make /usr/inferno own by root and inferno group or something like this but I am not sure if this open a security whole.. probably yes. Should I create a new user inferno group inferno and the from unix mkdir under /usr all the user directories. Will inferno see the underlying filesystem with the right permissions? Also how do I logout from the inferno shell? Thank you Miguel Angel Sepulveda Department of Chemistry Princeton University email= email@example.com http://www.princeton.edu/~angel phone=609-2586183
