We would like to use eDirectory/Novell to authenticate users on the Mac
(OS X).

Do any of the third party clients take over the Mac GUI login window
simular to the way the Novell Client replaces the GINA?

I've also seen documentation dealing with integrating OS X with
eDirectory, extending the schema and I assume autheticating via LDAP.

Does anyone have any suggestions, or is someone already doing this on a
large scale? The goal, at least initially is to provide authentication
services using eDirectory to the Mac.. we may eventually want to provide
file services, but not at the start.

Thanks for any help.
