Users home?

How do you change the users home directory in OS X? It does not seem to use the /etc/passwd file..

You're right, /etc/passwd is not used. All functionality is handled my lookupd. So, if you want to change a user's home directory open up NetInfo Manager and change the user's home from there.

I use netinfo in utilities and select users and the user. You can then set the home directory. Don't know the way to do it via shell but I use timbuktu.
