Hi,

How can i make a user to be able to write to a directory?.
He is able to write or create a file in /tmp but not in some other
directory.

Try reading the info you get when you run the command "man chmod". Many
of the directories are set so the user can *NOT* write to them. This
prevents user from screwing up the system files.
