I haven't tested it extensively yet, but the few times I've tried it password
changing most definitely works when using the LDAP front-end to NDS;  the key,
though, was to write cleartext passwords to the "userPassword" attribute on
the NetWare machine - then everything seemed to work just fine.  If I threw in
a Unix crypted password (ie., "{crypt}...") then authentication worked for
Unix clients but stopped working via regular NetWare NDS methods.
