Is it possible to set up mod_auth_pam in combination with pam_smb so
that web users don't need local accounts at all?  I have one machine
where everyone does have an account and authentication works using
the password from the NT domain controller.   I'd like to make
web authentication work on other machines without having to maintain
the unix account info or allow logins for most of the users but
apache seems to require the account entry.
