Hello all:
I'm working on a new k12ltsp 5EL installation. So far I have the server 
loaded, its mounting users' /home dirs from a remote machine via nfs,  
authenticating via our remote ldap server (FINALLY!!!, thanks Dan and 
others) and now when I login as a user I get "User's $Home/.dmrc file is 
being ignored (etc)" I googled the answer to this error and found that I 
need to login as me and chmod the permissions to 644. I tried to do this 
and found that the file isn't there. Its not there on the LTSP server, 
its not there on the remote server (where the home dirs are served from 
via nfs). Any thoughts on where I might look for this file or, more 
importantly - why am I getting this error and will I have to manually 
fix the error for each user? I'm going to assume that it has something 
to do with the way the /home dirs are being mounted.  The relevant line 
from /etc/fstab is as follows:

<remote server name>:/home        /home            nfs    auto        0 0

Thanks in advance for any help,
