OT: Authenticate IIS pages by linux

Sorry if this is too much offtopic:

We are running a small database containing telephone and room numbers,
appointments, etc on an NT server with Access and IIS (testphase). The db
is to be accessed and updated by WWW browsers.

User authentification is done by our Linux server by UNIX passwords and
samba (We maintain encrypted samba passwords and UNIX passwd data in

Is there a simple (and secure) solution to use the existing authentification
databases for the WWW database pages as well? Regularyly copying of a few
automatically generated files would be considered a viable solution as well,
our users don't change *that* much.


Plug-and-Play is really nice, unfortunately it only works 50% of the time.
To be specific the "Plug" almost always works.            --unknown source
