Good Day all,

Please forgive me if this is an improper mailing list for this. I
have a question about University pages, or pages with many many users. I
have see pages where a large university has hundreds of home pages for
their students. Is there a script of some sort that searches a machine or
searches all the /~username directories for a home.html file or something
and then creates a html file with all the links in it?

We are going to use NFS to mount space on a seperate machine for
users home pages. I have noticed that if there is no home.htm(l) then the
browser will default to listing the files in the directory. Is there a
setting in one of the configuration files for the server to avoid this?
Thans for any help.
