Using pam_ldap implies that you have an LDAP directory that contains
your account data.  Instead of looking in /etc/passwd or the NIS
passwd map, PAM will query your LDAP directory server.  The password
you give is the one that matches the entry in the directory.

Your question suggests that you have some reading to do before you
try this for real.  I've found "Implementing LDAP", by Mark Wilcox,
to be helpful.

Good luck!
