Re: [K12OSN] Re: AR/STAR Take XXXXXVI (give or take a few)- Crossover Office Works!



Jeff,

What I do on my LTSP server is make a smb /etc/fstab entry for the
accelerated reader database and mount it to  a directory on my
filesystem.  I mount the directory as root, but have the group belong to
all the users who should have accelerated reader access.
