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.

Are all the clients Linux? How big is your user pool, Samba4 is still in alpha stage, but I built it and it worked good for my purpose. Also, some distros like Redhat/CentOS have a directory server you can install and configure. I have done this also, but did not tinker with it much because I got bored and reformatted my server and started from scratch, and did not reinstall it yet.
I will take a look at that, here is what i have so far tried and am trying.
Kerberos+OpenLDAP (still working on this)
Is it possible to configure Kerberos to store the passwords for an NIS Mapped network.
I liked the way NIS worked, as I could disallow all users except for a selected few to the environments they needed access too. but because of how the NIS/YP send the password has unencrypted across the network it makes it not a viable solution.
The issue I was having with LDAP, is denying users access to a specific machine, while providing them access to others. I could only get this one to work by having all users access every machine.
