Due to some internal politics using the NW client isn't going to be
feasible (stupid, yes). We will be switching from a NW 6.5/ AD 2K mixed
network to a AD 2k3/ Suse OES network in the next few months. We have
some web apps taht use AD for authentication. We're going to use IDM to
link the eDir and AD. Does a regular end user require the NW client to
have this work? The end users will authenticate to the eDir Suse servers.

Thanks in advance!
