Well, we are in DOS, not Unix.... I don't see clearly the advantages of 
looking into an variable for getting the users/passwords list... Can someone 
explain that to me?

I don't see such needs... I will wait for other's opinions thought...

FD Password do exactly the same thing you told. It create a batch file in his 
own directory called "LASTUSER.BAT". By the way, the install.bat batch add to 
AUTOEXEC the two following lines:
So if you installed FD Password, you have after each boots an environment 
variable "USER" with your login. With that you can easily do various 
configurations for each user ;-)

No. It's basically impossible, as for security reasons FD Password don't 
stores the user's password anywhere, it just saves its checksum with a SDBM 
hash and then works only on the stored checksums. Maybe you should set on 
NetWare/SMB login=password and then use the USER variable?

Thanks for the interest about FD Password :)
