Okay this is the bit I want to know more about. What are the ways of doing
this? Copy the files over? What about shadow passwords? Is their a right
way to do it when you have a few machines and need to share files around
between them. What do people here do?
I have lots of accounts on one machine that supports dialin users but only
a few common ones on the others, I don't necessarily want them all on the
/me notes to spend some time reviewing file permissions on the boxen.
