Should I put user home dir in /home or /export/home?
Solaris 2.5/DNS/small network.

1) I used Auto Layout during installation, so root is small (14M). That is
a good thing anyway.
2) System is using automouter, so I /home is a mount point. I will not be
able to create directories under /home
3) Use /export/home -- I have to create the user directory manually
4) Leave defaults in useradd alone, so logical user home is at /home/username
5) Add automount entry for each user home in /etc/auto_home
