Look at http://blank.pages.de/pam/ for the module. It includes some
documentation on how to install and use it. Please don´t hesitate to ask
me for more assistance.

Note that the module has been developed on RedHat 4.2, which includes a
different version of the PAM library than RedHat 5.0. I don´t know for
sure if this will cause problems, but someone on this list should know. 

When I get my hands on a RedHat 5.0 system, I´ll test it out. When I get
bug reports, I´ll try earlier.

The company I work for tried to fit their billing and ticketing system
into mSQL, too, but it got to cumbersome. We took a clean approach and
converted the whole system into an LDAP based directory, which works
much better and integrates better with Apache, too. If you are
interested in that, remember that this list is only about PAM.
