I've always thought that Linux distributions should just come up running 
an LDAP server for authentication so that adding your 2nd shared server 
would be even easier than the 1st instead of having to start over to 
figure out how to convert both to central authentication.  Now I think 
ClearOS (formerly Clarkconnect) might actually do it.  Has anyone looked 
at it yet?
