Not sure about the wording, but the requirement is that the directory
exist on a main-server(+whatever) installation.  It can be a separate
partition or just a subdirectory.

How about giving a meaningful error message if the directory doesn't exist? "Please, make sure, the home base directory '/t/s/h0' exists and is writable for root". As LWAT deligates the creation of users to a cronjob, this feedback cannot be given from within the web interface (immediately). Hence it has to go to a log file that should be displayble by LWAT (new section: last logs?).

What do you think?
mail to root would be more easy for users to pickup i think. they'd get notified when they login. and if they forward root's mail to a administrative account they'd recive it there. a single line in a log is often like the needle and the haystack.
