Folder premissions

Hello ! Yes I'm a new bee :-)
Installed Suse on my home computer last weekend, and reading all information i can get from internett. But i have right now two questions ( will be more) regarding some problems.

How do I create a folder(dir) that all users have premissions to change the content? In the /home/usr1 folder only usr1 can change the content. And where is the best place to put a folder like this.

I have installed TSS ( Team Speak Server), this is installed in /home/usr1 folder, but the problem is that only usr1 can start and stop this server then.
Therefor i will install this a place where all users can start and stop this server.

Is there a another way to start and stop this server, thinking of making a script or something? Now i go to the current folder where it's installed and typing ./teamspeak_server Start. How do I make the script and how do i start the script.

Best REgards

to create a folder mkdir is the command

to give permission command is chmod

you can man the commands and see there usage

Well for a script you need to know scripting language

To make a folder you mkdir (folder name) without the parenthesis.
To make it accesable to all users chmod 777 (folder name) again without the parenthesis.
For scripting there are a few choices the easiest(IMHO) is shell scripting.

hope I helped....
