I'm attempting to setup samba authentication via PAM and more  
specifically the pam_pwdfile module. So far I have had trouble  
determining the right mix of global settings to get this to work. I  
have read through many tutorials online, but so far I have not found  
good documentation on how to achieve this. What I am really attempting  
to do is unify the credentials for access to the server though ftp,  
apache, and samba. I _do not_ want to link the linux shell credentials  
to this for various reasons including security. Any helpful  
suggestions would be appreciated.
