No, NDS (now called E-directory) is not just an implementation of LDAP.  It
is LDAP compliant, but it is far more advanced than just LDAP.

BTW, Novell sells a product that will allow you to run NDS on a Linux box
and use it to manage the accounts.  It's called Account management
(logically enough).

Isn't Novell's NDS basically just LDAP?  If it is then pam_ldap will
work fine.

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?
