SUMMARY : PC-NFS authentication failure with no shell

Glenn Satchell was first past the post - it seems that pcnfsd makes some
attempt to decide that a user has a valid shell, and it checks that the
name of the shell specified ends in sh. So, I simply renamed my noshell
script to nosh and made the appropriate changes in the password file.

Thanks Glenn and the rest of you - you know who you are.

Kindest regards,

Niall O Broin
