Hi.  Sorry for the late reply.  Here is a shot to hopefully help you a
bit on the way.

No idea why.  Did you add the PXE-installed PC into the required
netgroup to make sure it is allowed to mount the home directories?
Please read the GettingStarted chapter of the documentation if you have
not done so alread.

No idea why.

This sound like the old expired password problem, documented with
workaround in
<URL: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Squeeze/GettingStarted#User_Management_with_GOsa.2BALI- >.

The double s originates from the conversion of UTF-8 in LDAP/Gosa to
ASCII in /etc/passwd. ß is mappet to ss.  It is the same as it happening

  echo ß | iconv -t ASCII//TRANSLIT

I would guess the Kerberos and LDAP password got out of sync when you
set a new password to replace the expired password.  To get them back in
sync you can log into Gosa and set a new password.  Gosa will set both
LDAP and Kerberos passowords to the same value (as well as the Samba
password).  Yes, it is annoying that there are three copies of the
password around, but not much could be done about it for Squeeze.

Happy hacking
