[jcifs] JCIFS, Kerberos

I would not like anyone to spend a long time on this, but could someone 
briefly outline what are the differences in authentication mechanisms 
between a Kerberos and non-Kerberos situation, from a jCIFS point of view ?
(Or provide some pointers to that effect, other than a pure Kerberos 
I have a superficial knowledge of Kerberos in general, and a somewhat 
better understanding of the NTLM authentication mechanism, but what I do 
not entirely understand is why there have to be 2 separate versions of 
JCIFS authentication to handle the Kerberos case.

Thanks in advance
