Do i know u??? Well neways...
NIS was designed for this but does have some shortcommings...id use it
though.... Also, if its a simple need you can use webmin's "cluster"
capability which allows you to (asynchronically) synchronize [heh]
passwd files between servers.

Yeah....as far as i can tell you can do this too....check the samba
howtos included in woody's samba/samba-doc packages

No problem.....squid authentificates against practically everything
known to man.... specially, if youve syncronized to samba, you can use
the smb_auth auth module which ive used extensively.
Also, you can centralize most of what you say to a mysql backend by pam
and have everything auth there....not to mention (because i dont know
squat about them) the ldap posibilities....you chose three (smb,passwd
and squid) very well supported thingies if you need flexibility in
