I tried just creating them on the E-smith server but it didn't work. 
Apparently K12LTSP needs to store some info about each and everyone of them.
It's not a big hassle tho' and their passwords don't need to be 
maintained on the K12LTSP server, only on the E-smith.

Much of what I've done to get it running has been trial-of-error. I only 
really started digging into K12LTSP recently, and into Linux only this 
year, so I'm still a struggling newbie. Most likely, someone will be 
able to tell me about simpler or more correct ways to do things but I'm 
learning a lot and I really appreciate that.
