Instead of using a general purpose account, why not give everyone an account, then make them a member of a group, and give that group the access.

That way you can easily add / remove people from the group instead of trying to do it this way.

Otherwise, don't use a password, set the machine to use trust or ident or something like that where a password wouldn't matter.

any user can change his own password,
i haven't found a way of prohibiting this.
what about a general user (eg test/test), that is used by many people,
one of those people could use alter user (being connected as test/test) the 
change the password, leaving the rest clueless..

suggestions to prevent this?, i need a general (readonly) user!
