Sure, you can give permissions on a system wide directory for everyone to read and write to, OR you could just use one that already exists such as /tmp
chown root.users /home/shared
chmod 770 /home/shared
Also when I install a program in root, it will work under my user name too right?
If the file is meant to only be accessed by root (a super user tool) then no, it shouldn't be. However, if it's supposed to be used by everyone (for example gkrellm) then yes, it should be able to be accessed and executed by any user on the system.
