Hi All,

I'd like add my 2 cents here after so many useful posts. I have 2 kids
at home, and only one computer (actually only one desktop :-) ). And I
do have prboom, and sharequake, and enemy territory installed. If just
manage to make these brutal games only playable by me. Here how I did

1 - Create a new group "brutal" (addgroup brutal)
2 - Make all brutal binaries and data files owned by the brutal group
    (e.g. chgrp brutal /usr/local/bin/prboom, chgrp -R brutal
3 - Make the binaries and data files unreadable and unexecutable for
    (e.g. chmod -R o-a /usr/local/bin/prboom /usr/local/share/prboom/*)
4 - Add me to the brutal group (addgroup claudio brutal)

Now only me can play those games. I though about doing this with
firefox... but that is not a very good solution :-)

All commands are just what I remenber and may be not 100% correct (Only
the meaning is correct). You need to be root, so you probably want to
write "sudo" before all commands.

Good luck on getting your boxes child-safe ;-)
