I don't really understand what you mean. Can you explain in greater detail?

That's for IIS. I had a look at the linked linux install, and it doesn't seem like it's at all applicable to a LAMP multi-user setup that hosts use. Also, when I try to access the linux commandline client for dropbox, it did not work.

Let me know if you have any further info.

max can you send me details about your linux environment so that i will try on that environment on my laptop and see is it working aur not .
and for multiuser case you should look at this http://www.dropboxwiki.com/Multiple_Instances_On_Unix

I had a look at that and it implies several things...

First of all, it seems entirely only relevant to desktop use and not server environment. On a server, users do not really ever "log in" like they do on a desktop.

Second of all, it seems a separate instance of the app needs to be ran for every user? This is simply not viable - especially not on a free hosting server.
