Hi, I'm new to the list...and spent a couple of days searching here and
on the net for workable solutions to the folowing:

I'm running samba 2.0.6 on RedHat 6.2--all standard installs. I would
like to be able to have the unix accounts have corresponding samba
accounts, w/ the same passwords.

I read about a pam module "pam_smbpass" but I can not get a copy of the
samba source (I believe it needs the TNG tree) that the patch will work
against (not via CVS nor just looking for old tarballs).

If anyone knows where I can get a source of samba that the "pam_smbpass"
module from ftp.netexpress.net will compile against, or if there is
another solution using PAM or somehow else automatically updating
smbpasswd when "passwd" is used on the unix side--I would greatly
appreciate some direction ;)

Thanks in advance,
