The development of Grid middleware, such as the Globus Toolkit version 2, reached a level of maturity and stability in which it was possible to create widely distributed resource Grids. Within the last few years various experiences have arisen from the construction of such Grids and so called 'testbeds'. The purpose of this paper is to highlight some of the problems, propose some simple solutions, and to report on the development of prototype implementations. The focus of this paper is on solutions that can be coordinated using an information system representing Virtual Organisations. In the process of this research two achievements have been outlined: the development of a tool for authentication management and resource configuration; and the development of a prototype job queueing service.
