Why do you need a separate range?
Regarding your wish for one single repsository of information, that is

with. For example, recent changes in Heimdal snapshots allow Kerberos
backed off the samba password database.
On the other stuff, I just setup scripts for my site - I have a
'hcadduser' that sets things up how *I* like it.
