Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe FUSE is a viable option in 
multi-user settings.  I was looking at using sshfs to provide a network 
share until I read that Fuse does not support file locking properly and 
therefore could encounter problems when a file is being written to from 
multiple sources (like say, two network users).  Of course, I don't have 
the web page handy where I found this either... sorry.  The same 
document recommended using CIFS or NFS instead.  That may be old info 
though, so do your homework regarding FUSE if you are looking at it.
