Schema is thee only for your reference, it is not used by geronimo.

You can specify where the geronimo installation is by setting

-Dorg.apache.geronimo.home.dir=<location> on the server command line.

The only files that are not read only are under var, and you can  
specify the location of the var directory on server startup with

-Dorg.apache.geronimo.server.dir=<location> on the server command  
line.  If this is a relative path it is resolved relative to the  
geronimo home dir: if absolute such resolution is not necessary.

You might be able to use something like nfs mounts to share a basic  
geronimo installation on one machine with all the running copies  
having local var directories.  If there is any chance of users  
independently deploying apps with the same name you will want to set  
up secondary repositories in the local var directory.  There are some  
instuctions here: 

hope this helps
