Yes, Any file that represents the auth for a service you want you're
NT users to have access to.
~# cd /etc/pam.d/
/etc/pam.d# ls
chfn  ftp   kbdrate  other   pop     sshd  system-auth  xserver
chsh  imap  login    passwd  radius  su    xdm

If you only want people to su ssh and pop then only change those files.

You your system has lines like:
...... pam_stack...system_auth
then you only need to change the system auth file and all the other use that
as a reference.
