This is great news. We will get new computers for a computer lab here,
and I can make 1/3 of the boxes Debian installations for comparison
with Windows NT. Without a way to authenticate to existing databases I
wouldn't be able to do it. And with this pam_mkhomedir module, I
really think I can set up the thing to actually work :-)

Now I will start reading about pam and ldap.
