Ah. I just tried putting it in /etc/fstab, and doing mount as
alisdair, and it worked :-)

I get `no such option' if I try that.

The /etc/passwd and /etc/group files are totally different across
the two machines: e.g. the UID for alisdair on letdown is the
UID for knox on skinny. Is there a sensible way of fixing this?
Should I look into NIS?

Thanks for your help,
