and then just add users you want to have access to ssh to that group.
I don't think you understood the question.
SSH uses PAM to enable it to authenticate users using /etc/passwd and/or /etc/shadow. I want to be able to authenticate people to SSH using a MySQL database/table, where everyones username/password/account details are stored in it, hence the pam_mysql module.
Any other advice welcomed
