If you configure SSH and NFS, you get passwords logins and mounts. I think
mount.smb can use it as well as smbclient. I know that KDE auto logs me into
Samba/WIndows file shares without a password just like Windows. If you have
Kerberos websites, you can configure your browser to pass tickets and get
single-signon. There are quiet a few things you can do. If you have to enter
a password, there is usually a way to enable Kerberos for it.
