   Is this also true on Solaris 8?
   I'm trying to get Samba 3.0.10 to authenticate some Windows users against
the Active Directory without making local Solaris accounts. Do I need to
build MIT Kerberos [done, v. 1.3.5], then OpenLDAP [having problems learning
how to configure this, 2.2.19], and *then* Samba?
   Does pam_ldap replace OpenLDAP? Does pam-krb5 replace Kerberos? Can I use
just one, or do both substitutions take place?
   I have the books and I try to read the newsgroup, but I'm having trouble
getting all three of these things going at once. (I have a late 2-series
Samba install running, but it doesn't have the snazzy AD integration.)
   Thanks for any pointers to more information.
