	I have not done this; nor do I know of anyone who has.
However, I did do some background investigation.  It looked like you
could use the PADL LDAP NSS (http://www.padl.com/nss_ldap.html)
and IRS (on BSD/OS "man 5 irs.conf").  The PADL stuff claims that it
supports BSD/OS.

	 As far as I can tell, it should work right out of the box.
Experience tells me that nothing works right out of the box...  IF you
try it and run into problems, please let me know and I will help put
pressure on BSDI to resolve the problems.
