Well, were're up against the wall here, I think.

I checked to see if Photoshop 7 was supported by Codeweavers Crossover and 
it was, but there is a problem running it though on our 3rd K12LTSP server 
though.  (My art teacher help pay for the server... so I'm motivated to get 
things going!!)

The problem that the Crossover technician is attributing it to is Photoshop 
interaction with the .cxoffice folder through NFS.

I need to still have this K12LTSP server using NIS and NFS because it splits 
its responsibility between the Art room and serving Library clients.

Can I have 6 local accounts on this server with homes coming from, for 
example: /home-art   ???
Six users from /home-art would logon through their clients to this server 
and would use the servers local /home-art.  All other users - in the library 
- would logon normally (not knowing or caring that their homes came via nfs 
and nis)????

Thanks for ANY ideas,  Jim
