Sure, that why we are here.  ;>

Two possibilities:
- Everybody with a login can create homepages on genba.
Just create a public_html directory in you homepage and make sure
the world can read it.

- Everybody in the group groff can write the
        /var/www/groff directory
Just add a subdirectory, let's say playground and 
give it the right permissions.
Also add a file called robots.txt, with the following content to
exclude that directory from search robots:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /playground/

Everybody in the group could make subdirectories and so on.
The second way might be a bit better because of the robots exclusion.

Yes if he is helping groff and is trustworthy.
Just mail me his full name and email again or to address@hidden

True, but we (the admins) would preferr not to do 
development or testing work on genba. You should use your 
machine at home for this. It can be done though if necessary.

Oh, BTW: We don't allow telnet or personal ftp for security
reasons. You need to use ssh and scp. \
Tell us, if this is a problem and we shall help 
you to get hold of an ssh compatible program.

Werner: You are groupadministrator for the group groff now.
Please peak into "man gpasswd" you should be able to put people into
the group or remove them.
