Biometrics principles

Thinking in all the newbies around here (me included) I would like to ask you for a general guide to work with biometrics. What should we consider to :

-How to choose a good fingerprint reader for Linux
-Use fingerprint readers to authenticate (how to use them with gdm)
-Wich programs do we have to use our biometric devices (like checkin management programs)

I have read in forums about very specific problems, but a general guide could give us a clue on how to proceed an bother the people only with real problems.

Linux biometrics is all over the place... pretty much the same as the HW.

eg: since you seem focussed on fingerprint comparison.
More general biometrics: since there are many things you can measure.

The best bet, like with all hardware, is to find out what models are available, then google them.

Checkin management is in addition. The easiest bet is just to have whatever scheme you'd usually use sans biometrics.
