I'm currently trying to hack this. I've started investigating the NISGINA code
to see how they handle it.

hmm, if all user data is stored in a LDAP directory we ca use the standard
LDAP administration tools to manage the accounts. I don't know
Workstation Manager since I'm no Novell User. What's it's purpose?

That's what I think at the moment. Maybe once I've fought against NT, LSA,
MSDN, SSP, andwhatevermicrosoftacronym, I'll come to the conclusion that
the task is too complex. But I'll give it a try.
