As a system admin you may enounter cases where certain group of individuals are working on a project and thus must share a account.
This simple how-to is precisely about that.

Create a group...with
#groupadd -g 243 octave

here octave is the group name and 243 is the group Id.
Now create user accounts that belong to this group and have same home account.
Let's say "/home/octave".
The third step is to have settings such that everyone of that group is able to create a file in the directory "/home/octave" but no one is able to delete anything from "/home/octave".Use chmod for that...
#chmod 1755 /home/ocvate
