I second that last comment. PAM configuration should be the same for any
 system using PAM. When I read the O'Reilly book to learn about setting
up PAM/LDAP years ago, I was setting it up on both Linux and IRIX. While
many things on IRIX are different, the PAM configuration was identical.
That's one of the many great things about PAM.
