Then all you need is PAM_SMB, it works fine as a stand alone product (that
is, no need for TNG). 

There is a pam modual for Netscape server and it works well. There is a
suggestion that pam_smb is not as secure as pam_ntdom but if you are
getting the passwords from the web anyway its hardly worth worrying about.
