I'm not too impressed with the pam_tally modules supplied with Fedora
Core 3 - it returns a different error message if you get the password
right but it's exceeded the tally...

Completely negating the security I wanted to implement with it!

I prefer the version described at
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/pam/Linux-PAM-html/pam-6.html#ss6.24
as it performs account denying at the authentication stage - which
should hopefully not distinguish whether a correct password has been
passed if the tally count has been exceeded...

I shall see whether I can get it running with the version of PAM
supplied with FC3 - if not, I'll look into replacing the whole PAM system...
