I followed your directions Barry, and it exported fine.  I moved it to my edubuntu test machine, and went through the import process.  That seemed to work fine too.  However, when I look in the Gnome Users & Groups, none of the users I imported show up.  I tried to log in as one of these users, no luck.  Their home directories did transfer - when I look in /home they are all there.  What did I miss?

Hi Will,

When exporting users,and you browse to the folder you want to save your
users file to: CHECK-(Save users to a file) and click on the browse
button ..., you end with something similar to the following in the
line;  /dir    You need to append a forward slash /  and a file name
' users '.
So you end up with the following,  /dir/users
Now click on button 'Export users ' at the bottom and at the top you'll
see   ### users successfully exported.

Take Care,
Barry Cisna
