Hi Lewis :

Maybe you should rethink the design of your LTSP farm a bit.
What you basically want to do is copying the users across...
This can be done by copying part of files like /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow.
(Eventually /etc/groups etc)
A script that runs at night can keep things in sync, although I believe 
is an ugly solution, it can work in your environment.
But how are you gonna keep the users /home directories in sync?
Or is the /home a nfs mount from 1 central location?
Why not putting all the auth info and /home directories on 1 box?
