On a semi positive note, the 2 people that were working the project were
able to accomplish this at the very last moment. So I do appreciate the
help but it looks moot at this point. Thanx for the help everyone!!

It's hard to make it a consistent interface for all platforms.
Unless you have something like Microsoft's Web Folders on a Mac I would
go with samba+netatalk.

Isn't Novell's NDS basically just LDAP? If it is then pam_ldap will
Be aware that if you have to worry about Samba NDS may not be an option.
Or maybe the other way around :)
Is the brokenness on the Win2k box something that's easy to fix?
