|Can anybody give me a hand to setup a samba server with pam support?

I also would appreciate if someone had a samba PAM config file to post to
the list, preferably an example of samba passwords working with the
cracklib module to enforce strong passwords?   Is this possible?-- I know
you can't use PAM for 'authentication' with encrypted passwords, but the
smb.conf man page that 'obey pam restrictions = yes' only applies for
'session' and 'session' management... how about 'passwords'? (require use
of unix /etc/passwd passwords?)

Would appreciate any guidance on this. Thanks.
