The usage scenario is intended to be flexible:

1) Create names for your categories
2) Assign users to categories
3) Let users label their files with the categories as they see fit

So, a simple example might be:
a) Define c1 to mean "Company_Confidential"
b) Configure all users to have access to c1
c) Users add this label to files like "secret_product_plan.pdf"
d) httpd, ftpd etc. can't access the file anymore
e) When printed, this category label is automatically added to the header 
   and footer of each page or a cover sheet (once labeled printing is 

It's really up to you how you use it, though.

Just using it at all is helpful at this stage.  Let us know if you find 
any problems.
