The immediate problem is an access exception - users like Asterix\Steve -
completely unknown to the file system cannot write files or directories.
There is another error "Insufficient memory to start the java runtime" but
we do not get far and a chunk of this effort has been to create a small
sample to post.
The real issue is that from an external machine hadoop runs as the local
user on the client machine - in 0.2 with security turned down that worked
although the listed file ownership in hdfs was a little strange. In 1.03 it
does not work because Hadoop/hdfa will not let these foreign users own

Can you share your specific error/exception please?
