I believe that they are one in the same. I _think_ this is what is 
considered NTLM, but the NT gurus could probably set me straight 
on this.

FYI - Digging around in DejaNews last night I ran across a guy who 
was asking how to get in touch with the Apache group about giving 
us some NTLM authentication code. Seems he is a member of the Samba 
team. I've sent him mail to see if we can pull this in.
