	The start and stop scripts have directory layout assumptions.  The alternative is to use
hadoop-daemon.sh to start/stop manually each service on each node.  To work around different
users, you might need to modify the members list of the supergroup.  But I don't remember
if that is necessary or not.

	It should be noted that using different users and different directory layouts is not recommended
and you will likely end up being very very frustrated.
