(run two simultaneous PAMs: one kerberos-pam, the other an ntdom-pam.  i 
think that's the way it works.  each pam will be simultaneously 
maintaining password databases.  each time the user changes their 
password, both databases will be updated).

hang about... could you possibly describe your setup a little more to me,
