Most Linux machines are provided with world-writable scratch space located in /pcdisk/<HOSTNAME>. All users have permission to read and write files in this location. This scratch space is contained on the machine's local disk as opposed to being mounted over the network, and as such may be used to improve the performance of heavily I/O-dependent programs. You should transfer any important files out of this space after your program has completed, and should also clean up any temporary files.
 If you want to access storage from a Linux machine which has not been configured to mount these storage areas automatically, you can use CIFS for which you will require administrator rights. The command to mount a directory takes the following form:

$ mount -t cifs cifs://ppesmb<PATH> <MOUNT_PATH> -o user=guphysics/<USERNAME>
