Ouch. Since we've got NT4 clients, I don't think this will work out.
I tried NISGINA, but it didn't work as well as I'd hoped it would.
We'd prefer roaming profiles. I tried to modify it to accept a generic
restricted account (authenticate via NIS passwd, but login as a different
user) but I couldn't get it to compile.
It looks like we'll have to stick with separate password 'domains' for now.
