You may have auto-home turned on. The directory under Solaris 10 is probably under /home. The 'link' is created to /export/home/<user>, after the user logs in.

You can turn that off, if you like.

In Solaris you 're supposed to create your users this way (including homedir and shell): useradd -d /export/home/linuxguy -m -s /bin/ksh linuxguy

=> the -m option tells 'useradd' to automatically create the home directory
