What type of machines are you planning on authenticating? Windows? Mac? Unix? Dialup users, Proxy users, Remote X clients etc?

If you're going to do login authentication with windows machines look at samba.

You are going to do just *nix machines look at NIS+ or LDAP.

I know Mac's support LDAP and SAMBA authentication especially if using version 10.2 or higher.

Also do you already have an existing network authentication system in place?
