In a multi-user environment with a customized toolbox, you will want to store your toolbox on a network location so all users have access to the same database.  The process is straight forward but there are a few steps you need to take to ensure that all toolbox references will be updated to the network and not your local drive.  The following video explains the process.  Also, be aware that once the toolbox is on the network, upgrading client machines will no longer upgrade the toolbox.  This will need to be done manually as explained in this blog post.
