I found a great article on how to configure PAM.  I believe this may be
one of the best ones that I have read yet.  It explained things very well
I thought.  You probably have to be registered for linux-mag if you want
to read it, but that is free.  This is a very good article.  It explained
the system-auth file also, which is used in Linux, but I don't think that
FreeBSD uses that.  I was wondering exactly what it did until I read this
article.
