Hmmm ... do you want to them to be able to be able to change the  
contents of the files, but not delete them? If so then I think it's  
impossible for a filesystem that uses the posix rwx file permission  
bits. It may be possible if you're using solaris with zfs, I'm not  
sure - I'll check on my server later but your initial email said you  
were using Redhat so I guess it doesn't matter. If you want the users  
to only be able to add new files (but never change or delete old  
files) then just set the file create mask to make sure that newly  
created files don't get write permissions, like Cleber P. de Souza  
suggested in the other email.
