On 4 Jun 99, "Bas Smit" <bassmit at> had questions about 
Samba as a member of a NT domain - questions:

PAM should already be installed on *any* linux distribution (it's 
standard on linux and solaris).  I've never heard of PAM_NTdom, but 
you can find PAM docs on the Sun support site, as well as in your 
linux /usr/doc tree.
