When installing openSUSE 11.0, you are offered a choice to have users
authenticated against a Windows AD. If you select not to do so during
the install, will the system be set up to do so when, laser in Yast, you
join a Windows AD? Is there any downside to waiting for later to join
the AD? Something that is only done when this is enabled during install?

Only ever tried this in 10.2.
When you do not join the AD at installation and choose local auth, all users will be placed in /home/<user>.
When you then later join AD and make your default auth AD (NOTE: this is two separate things in Linux, not like on Windows), users will be in /home/<domain>/<user>.
Moving users to the new location did not work for me? to many badly written scripts assumed /home/<user>.

(this could be different in 11.0?)
