Hello Tim,

I run an K12LTSP server with 50 clients and also have 60 stand-alones 
authenticating from it using NIS and NFS.  What do you mean by Scanning?

I am sure this has been discussed but here are my
requirements.  I have at least one fat client Linux PC
that will be used for Scanning.  I would like to be
able to

1) use the same user id and password as on the K12LTSP
2) I would like to mount the K12LTSP home directory
for the user who signs on.

I am assuming some combination of NIS and something
else is the answer to my problem but a few pointers
would be appreciated.  While I am not uninterested in
LDAP, the LDAPSamba solution discussed on the list
seems like overkill for my issue.

Any thoughts/pointers?
