Domain logins imply the use of encrypted passwords.  You cannot use PAM
and (NT/Win2k style) domain logons - they simply are inconpatible.

Depending on what your external PAM module does, you may be able to use
the new plugable auth subsystem in HEAD to achive a similar outcome on a
challange-response basis.
