I think that's where I remember reading some stuff about it. You might poke 
through the archives a bit too.

Haven't had a chance just yet, but I've got eval discs of Novell Nterprise 
Linux Services right now, which basically implement all that and then some 
atop SuSE Linux Enterprise Server. Whatever AD may be, and no matter how much 
of a bad taste I have from MS, in a mostly-MS environment, it does the job, 
and even those with very little knowledge *should* be able to maintain it. 
Haven't had much Novell exposure to date, but I'm working on remedying that.

Though I'm seeing replies on the list already, so I guess a few people 
actually ARE reading this entire thread. ;-)
