About a month ago I worked on getting crontab working. I hadn't done it
before, and I found there were lots of details that were hard to get right.
I'd have to review it again to remember how that is set up.

In the older setup, without the physical passwd or group files, what would
happen if I rebooted at a point when the laptop wouldn't have been able to
reach the domain server?
