This actually makes a little sense - thanks for the pointers!


BTW: Is top posting bad?  I prefer top posts, but if the list doesn't
like it I'll change.  I'll find the rules and read them!

Nope.  FreeRADIUS' Makefile claims to support both Heimdal and  
Kerberos5, but you have to choose one or the other via the options

Likewise with Samba:
