Allright, but:
- users cannot be deleted this way
- I can't use the master password file, I have to create another one

What would be great is to exctract the uid>1000 in the passwd file, then 
append it to the password files on the others boxes while making it possible 
to delete users.
I don't think this is really possible anyway; I'm trying to find a way to make 
cfengine behaves like NIS for users management and it is not its purpose.

Thanks anyway.
