>Why use PGina when you can just join the Samba domain?
Passwords.  Even if you only use pGina to trap password changes, you get a
chance at the plain-text password without having some other funky
interface, just the standard ctrl+alt+del chage password.  pGina allows
chaining of ginas (which is actually what is supposed to happen,  but most
gina authors implement this incorrectly), so you can still use windows auth
if you want.

Anyway, Paul, have you tried the pgina site?  Nate is usually very helpful.
