	Samba isn't: that's not what it's supposed to do.

	Instead it is a client of your organization's
	existing authentication service, which can be
	Kerberos, YP/NIS or anything at all you can write
	a PAM module to use.  Including, of course,
	a well-known one which implements NT-style
	authentication (;-))
