Thanks Ralf. This didn't work on Dell Ubuntu, where ssh seems to be
broken. However, I put gOS on one and it works! (btw I'm getting tired of
customised Linux from hardware manufacturers - they are doing a great
service to microsoft)

However, I can't put it into fstab because HOSTuser (see above) will vary
with each child that uses the laptop. So what I did was wrote a little
script that prompts for the username first then mounts the corresponding
home from tjener. It works OK apart from Gnome asking whether to run,
display, etc. when the shortcut is clicked.

thanks again
