    well, you can:
    Code:
    chmod o+x adsl-start
    for example, and that allows others to execute that program.

    i try it but nothing, i think because all the programs i have installed are on the root directory.
    Where can i install the programs to share with all the users???
    and what are the command to share this programs???

    Generally when you install applications the are put to /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin but this is justa a one case. Now if you do what lakerdonald said you caan use that program (adsl-start) with the other users. What error did you get when you try this. You must put the error lines here so we can comment them. And i didnt understand something you said
    "i think because all the programs i have installed are on the root directory. "

    how? what /usr includes ?
