Pam question

Hello people,

Maybe a simple question, but I can't find any info on the list or the
manpages about this.

I am using the latest samba_2_2 cvs code in linux with winbind working
perfectly. The samba server will act as a file/print server, so the users
just need to be authenticated by the NT PDC.

The winbind manpage says to add these entries in /etc/pam.d/*

auth        required    /lib/security/
auth        required    /lib/security/
auth        required    /lib/security/
auth        required    /lib/security/ use_first_pass shadow
account     required    /lib/security/

My question is exactly which file  is this '*' in my case. Which one(s)
should be added/changed in /etc/pam.d? I tried adding a 'samba' file with
these entries as well as using a 'passwd' file with the same entries and
both work. I'd just like to know which one am I supposed to use, or maybe
another one.
