What you need to do really depends on just what you mean with

Do you mean to let multiple OS users access the same database
instance? I.e. different processes with different uids? This is possible
but not in embedded mode. You either need to start a NetworkServer, or
start your app with an embedded server. (See the documentation) 
Note that you cannot have two jvms accessing the same database.

Or do you mean what you need to do to create users in the database and
authorize them, i.e. CREATE USER, GRANT/REVOKE etc. ?

This is explained in the the manual, but I don't have the exact chapter
and verse.
