i have some questions about the pam module. if this is not
the right place  to ask "user support questions" tell me to
bug off or ignore me.

redhat5.0 which must do file sharing and mail:
with newest samba
with pam0.59

-did a make on pam_ntdom, and placed in

-created the /etc/pam_smb.conf as specified

-created a /etc/pam.d/imap file like this:

 auth       required     /lib/security/
 account    required     /lib/security/

-changed the /etc/pam.d/samba file like this:
 auth    required        /lib/security/
 account required        /lib/security/

- i'll attach the /etc/smb.conf at the end of this message

nt4 server, domain pdc:
added the linux station under the nt server manager (but
it's name stayed greyed out)

now, the problem is that i can't authenticate when i want to
read my imap mail, or even when i just want to map a nt
drive from the samba shares. i can't even "find" the samba
machine from the nt machines. life sucks.
