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!
