Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions and help me  
understand better.  I think I am getting closer, but not there yet.   
Here is what I have done.

I created a new entry in sources.php and set use_shared to false,  
copied the turba_objects.sql file, updated it to reflect the changes  
in sources.php,  imported it to mysql.  Modifed turba's conf.php  
$conf['client']['addressbook']to reflect the new source.  Login as  
admin, set permissions on Address book, Sources, my new source to All  
Authenticated - show, read, edit, delete.  Verified that the new  
address book is not shareabe via my address books, Edit address books,  
and the new address book is not editable.  Added an entry to the new  
address book, then go to Enter time.  New entry is visible to admin  

Logout and login as a new user and new user can't see the entry put in  
by Admin.  Add entry to new address book, go to enter time, new entry  
is seen by user1 only.  The is a repeatable pattern for any user.   
They see only their entries.

So, I still need help with how to make the new address book entries  
visible to all users.  It's fine if all entries to the new address  
book have to be entered by the admin and the other users have only  
show and read.  I tried changing perms for this as well.

What else have I missed or misunderstood?  If there is a doc or wiki  
entry on this, please point me to it.  I have been searching on this  
since before I posted this question.

Thanks again,
