How about posting the questions?  We can try to walk you through 
things.  I had a mod_sam which included about three different tables for 
authentication (checking a hosts table to see if they were allowed, 
checking the password, and also any restrictions, all from MySQL), so 
the resources are available to assist.

(I would do this because the more people that understand a module, the 
easier it is for them to troubleshoot should they encounter a problem.)
