    Hi,

    Firstly, apologies that this isn't strictly a programming issue, but the folks with the skills to advise on this are probably here.

    I seem to remember (possibly wrongly) that when you create a new user in Mac OS X, the users home folder is copied from a template somewhere, and its possible to add folders to that template.

    For example, if I wanted every new user to have a folder in their Documents folder called "Word Docs" then I could create that folder in the template folder structure.

    Firstly, did I imagine that? Secondly, where is the folder?

    Thanks
    r.
