Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been scouring the net for quite a while now trying to find good tutorials (specifically tutorials) on writting PAM modules. I have found tons of good examples, and lessons of how and what a PAM module does.
I have found one tutorial on writting a PAM module which doesn't go into detail of using system resources, drawing from libraries etc.
The client setup is a SuSE 9.0 default installation with all patches etc.
The environment is Windows, Kerberos & Active directory. I know what needs to be done but what I need to know is if a PAM module has to be written in C++ or C, vs. something like Perl or a sh/bash script.
Without having a local user setup but having an entry in AD & Kerberos I recieve and error that the kerberos authentication fails due to no UID/GID which is present in LDAP but not Kerberos. Example:
Kerberos sees username and password -> OK
LDAP sees username and looks for UID,GID,Home Dir., & Shell -> No UID/GID
Everytime Kerberos looks at the local /etc/passwd & /etc/shadow files for authentication informaiton and if there is not an entry it will not authenticate.
What I need is a way to point the pam_krb.c file to something other than the local accounts (that is without using the *K* in the /etc/shadow file trick).
Any help, resources, examples, tutorials, sanity & code examples are appreciated.
