Dear Sez,

This is guessing, but I think it should work.  Find the directory where 
the default bookmarks.html file for Mozilla is and replace it with one 
of your creation.  (make sure the permissions are the same after 
replacing as they were on the original)

For example, on my old K12LTSP 3.12 server the file is at

I'm not going to be able to answer this one very well, but I'll ask for 
some clarification.  Do you mean automagically connect when a user logs 
in to their home directory, or once logged in how can a user get to 
their stuff on the OSX server 'by hand'?

A few different ways via the command line would include ftp, ssh, and 
scp.  For GUI, I think in Gnome they could use the network browser to 
connect to the samba shares on the OSX server (or via AFP if you have 
netatalk installed on your LTSP server) .  The automagically stuff can 
probably be done using LDAP if you have that running on the OSX server 
and the LTSP server, but I have no idea how to do that.
