Last time I played with this, you did still have to create users home

But... a fairly easy way to fix this is to have a cron job that runs
periodically that looks at ldap and creates (and deletes if you want)
home directories as appropriate.

I haven't done much work with NIS and FDS, however, in openldap using
the nis.schema you could create automount entries that would allow you
to mount those home directories on the fly.
This is probably a good one for the how-to section, I'll do some
research and see what I can come up with. If anyone has any success
please feel free to respond to the list and I can get that information
posted for others.
