Look at Webmin (www.webmin.com). It allows you to define which modules a
user can access. Every part of it is configurable. You could probably use it
to give limited access to the Samba server for the purpose of handling user
accounts only.

Subject: SWAT - administrator account

We would like to give our HelpDesk staff the ability to change an
individual's password without giving them the root password to our server.
Is this possible?  Can you set up and administrator account that is not
root?  We do not want to allow individual users to see SWAT, so that is not
an option.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
