pam_smb will still work - but that module is as ugly as all heck!  If
you want a real pam moudule for NT/Win2k domain intergration, use the
pam_winbind included in HEAD (and 2.2 - but the head version is better).

BTW, 'native mode' actually doesn't change that much, its the
restirctions on top of that that start getting interesting...

If you are really native (no NTLM whatsoever) then pam_krb5 might do
somthing for you, but I've never used it with Win2k.
