system variables in pam



	I've got some questions about how pam enabled programs find out
item's like a user's shell? since some of the authentication modules just
use username/password pairs .. is it possible to have a user that doesn't
actually exist in the etc/password file? 

	so say for example i wanted to use the userdb module to
authenticate users for ftp .. but i don't want those users to have entries
in the /etc/passwd file.. how could i make that work? thanks
