I would agree with this... Bad idea. Totally kills things like quotas..
cripples files like .ssh/*
A better idea.. go ahead and have your standard mount point like /mnt/fat-data
and then in your home dir just symlink to the location:
ln -s /mnt/fat-data ~/fat-data
OR.. You could even set up all of your users their own dir withing fat-data
dir.. and then for each user, link them to:
ln -s /mnt/fata-data/$USER ~/My-Fat-Files
