    I'm very new myself so I can't give you specifics but to help you out until a better answer is given: search google & here for info on chmod. You have to set the permissions on that folder so that everyone can use the same one. I don't know if you should move it out of your home folder to somewhere else first or not. You can check out man pages on chmod as well possibly and even chmod --help.

    yeah i went thru KDE and right clicked on the folder and set the folder so that all users can edit or delete files from there. so maybe i do need to move it out of the /home dir. Do you know a better place to put it so that all users would be able to access it

    sheesh. that was much easier than chmod. I'm so used to redhat 5 from years ago... i don't know. I'd probably make another directory in the /home but just use it for the p2p folder. like /home/shared

    yeah i tried that this morning. i used the root login and made the /home/shared and gave all users permission to access it, and it worked pretty easy. This stuff is so much more stable then windows ever thought to be. Thanks for your posts
