Perhaps by creating groups under unix and then using preexec scripts to
test if a logon was from someone in the appropriate group.... But your real
problem will be stopping people from bypassing the logon on Win95 machines.
'Out of the box' win95 is not in any way secure, anyone can press 'cancel'
button. There have been a number of suggestions on how to tighten win95
logon security but they all come with a price (IMHO) that involves setup
difficulties, convience when something goes wrong etc.
