right, the clients boot the /opt/ltsp/i386 directory as / and start up
an login screen which then logs you in via ssh *on the server* after you
authenticated, so for user accounts only the server and the ssh daemon
count, there are no users at all in /opt/ltsp/i386 (and its mounted
readonly by the client so you wouldnt gain much *if* there were users)
