+.SH "DESCRIPTION"
+.PP
+The pam_mkhomedir PAM module will create a users home directory if it does not exist when the session begins\&. This allows users to be present in central database (such as NIS, kerberos or LDAP) without using a distributed file system or pre\-creating a large number of directories\&. The skeleton directory (usually
+/etc/skel/) is used to copy default files and also sets a umask for the creation\&.
+.PP
+The new users home directory will not be removed after logout of the user\&.
