Secondary Domino directory

I am new and have just installed a Domino Mail server, it is the only server we have. I work at a school and we are at present just having a few admin and staff members on board to test the system. I need to create an address book that those that are using notes can e-mail other staff that are still on our old mail system. In my reading I think the method would be to create a "secondary domino directory" When I attempt to do this however, I get a message that states that "you are not autorized to perform that operation": servername filename". I am able to create other databases, I just cannot do so with the Pubnames.ntf template. Is there something that needs to be enabled before you can created a secondary domain directory?
A primary Domino directory must already exist on the server. Just start doing registrations using your administrator ID and those people will be added to the existing domino directory.

Michael Lazar adds:

While you can change the NT environment variable, and in this case you should, you can also change it with a notes.ini parameter. If your server is partitioned properly, this can be a great I/O saver. Set the NT temp file variable to a drive with plenty of space. You can then set the Domino temp variable to another drive with plenty of space. Avoid the drive/spindle that has the Domino data files. The notes.ini parameter is Temp=X:abc.
