Though I understand "unix password sync" will provide this functionality
(sync the unix password when the samba password changes), is there a
procedure to do the reverse (sync the samba password when the user's unix
password is changed)?

Someone mentioned earlier on the list that a script or alias could be used
to do this, would anyone care to elaborate??  

What I am eventually looking for is a single sign-on functionality with
samba and how best to achieve it, would PAM help with this?
