I use LTSP both at home and at work, but I have never attempted what
you are doing. All publicly available mounts are mounted by fstab
and/or root and so are available to everyone logged in to the fat
server - do you really need to have individual users mounting things?
You probably do, and there are probably good reasons, but I would be
curious to know - in my implementation of LTSP, it never occurred to
me to do things that way.
In answer to your question, I don't think there is an issue about
mounting things twice - I just tested my LTSP server, and have no
problem mounting the same resource twice - obviously the second one has
to go onto a different mount point though. Maybe I misunderstood what
you are doing.
