Re: Question concerning PAM modules and root ...

yeah that would basically be about right ... I don't see this as a major
problem as I would trust the people in charge of my NT server.. I suppose
I could add something to the pam_smb.conf file in the next release a deny
users or something .. but having a large conf file will slow the thing
down to a very low rate ... what I may do is try and use some daemon code
to do the authentication ... this has been planned for a while now ..
