I have a script I run on template skel files. I use LDAP authentication. I create an entry in LDAP, and then rely on the mkhomedir pam module to create the home directory from the /etc/skel directory. After they have logged in, skel files are copied from that location, and modified by an /etc/profile.d/ script. The company is wizzy, so excuse all the wizzy references .. I append a shar of my skel dir, and a script to unpack them. It allows me to 'register' my use of galeon, and set up galeon's proxy. Cheers, Andy!
