uid?
Authored by: dlgraves on Jan 18, '03 01:12:44PM

This is not a good idea: it does make the user invisible on the login screen (and the Accounts preferences for that matter) but it also wreaks havoc on permissions, so the user cannot even access the folders in his/her own directory. UIDs below 500 must be for system processes and such.

Better way is to delete "Real Name" entry (the whole line, not just actual name) in NetInfo manager, as described elsewhere. . .

cheers
