Exclamation Home Directory Default Rights

Good day!

I have made a PHP script that interfaces with the Linux user system. The problem is that the rights granted to a new user's home directory is 700, and I need 711. Is there a way to set the default rights for a new user? Each home directory must have execute access to everyone. I am running Fedora Core 3 without SELinux.

Thanks for whatever you can do,

Scott Logan

I think I know what you mean...the umask of /home is 0022 but I don't think that effects it. I looked at /etc/skel and /etc/default/useradd and can't find anything. Any ideas?
