     This is exactly what I need to do as well.  I downloaded the stuff 
from http://www.rit.bme.hu/~balsa/pam_ldap_ntlm/ but thought it was the 
entire pam_ldap instead of a patch.  A patch is much better as I would 
like to apply it to my SuSE 8.0 pam_ldap-137 source rpm, then build an 
rpm from that.
     How can I apply the patch?
