 User customization is easily done in that users /home/.bashrc file
 and/or .profile and/or .bash_profile log-on scripts.
 There's no reason customizations and such can't be in those
 scripts ( that's what they're for ) including remounting that user's
 home directory from a share.
 It's a fundamental of *nix operating systems, although there 
 might be a linux flavor that doesn't, though I seriously doubt it.




Go placidly amid the noise and waste,
And remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.
Avoid quiet and passive persons, unless you are in need of sleep.
Rotate your tires.
Speak glowingly of those greater than yourself,
And heed well their advice -- even though they be turkeys.
Know what to kiss -- and when.
Remember that two wrongs never make a right,
But that three do.
Wherever possible, put people on "HOLD".
Be comforted, that in the face of all aridity and disillusionment,
And despite the changing fortunes of time,
There is always a big future in computer maintenance.

	You are a fluke of the universe ...
	You have no right to be here.
	Whether you can hear it or not, the universe
	Is laughing behind your back.
