RE: Managing users

At the time, I was using Mandrake. The Mandrake install has an option to
authenticate users against a windows domain. The configuration is done for
me by the install, but I understand the basics of what it does. There is a
part of Samba designed to synchronize user accounts, that's one piece. Also,
PAM gets configured to use Samba to authenticate. I'm sure this can all be
done manually by reading the specific documentation.

I'm sorry I don't have better documentation, but the Samba documentation
should help a lot. It appears the PAM project is the source for the Apache2
module, so that should all be documented as well. Like I wrote earlier, It
won't be easy, but it is possible.
