hee hee! welcome to solaris! this one gets everyone. /home is the automount
directory. it's not a real filesystem, it automounts home directories from an
NFS server if you set things up right.
try /export/home which is where all local user directories go, or look at
disabling the automounter daemon which will then let you use /home as a
but to be "solaris standards compliant" (not a bad thing) just put everything
in /export/home and leave /home as is.
