Does anyone have an easy way to change the permissions on the home directories so that only the owner has access to it. We have some very bright students and they have found out that they can copy work from someone else and have more free time. I am using the 5EL and have single sign on using likewise open from my windows server using active directory. I know I can change them one at a time using “chmod 700 filename”. I am not adept at writing scripts and hoping someone can help.
get the basics of shell-scripting down. I'd recommend heading over to http://www.tldp.org and reading the Advanced
BASH Scripting Guide. That's how I learned how to do it. Extremely
handy skill and very necessary, just as important as writing .BAT or .REG files
