Yes. And with a linux (Ubuntu Dapper) next to the windows machine...
All services work like a charm, just not from an old SecureCRT
client on windows...

So PAM is configured and working fine... I think the problem is that
sshd require 'keyboard-interactive' which the old client can't handle.
The new one works like a charm though. Unfortunatly it's so much
ugglier :). That's why I never upgraded that earlier. Now I don't
have a choice...
