[K12OSN] samba-winbind-ads setup

Sounds like a PAM problem.   if you run system-config-authentication,
and configure winbind support for both User information as well as
Authentication.  Also, try "getent password" or "getent group"... you
should see the AD users... just like you were looking at /etc/password
(unless you don't have enumeration set).

I personally am using AD directory via LDAP & Kerberos... I had to do
some hacking on /etc/pam.d/ to get it to work though.  Not fully
operational yet for all users (still "tweaking" my k12ltsp server).

Secretly, I am looking to dump AD next summer and move to pure LDAP...
my 2 win2k servers are cranky and steadily running out of space on C:
(what's up with that!!!!)
