When login in as guest or creating a new user, can I have a skeleton home folder (akin to /etc/skel on other unixes) pre-filled with files, and having some customized preferences?

Otherwise, is there any other way to achieve this?

Mac OS X stores the equivelant of /etc/skel in /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj
