I'm currently working on a Kerberos book for O'Reilly.  I started the
project precisely because I haven't seen any decent printed documentation
on Kerberos. This book will cover the basic protocols, several
implementations including MIT, Heimdal, and using Windows 2000 as a KDC.  
Also I'll cover cross-platform single-sign-on using Windows, Unix, and Mac
OSX as client machines.

I'll definately need reviewers (both technical reviewers and also
reviewers in my target audience, sysadmins with little previous
knowledge of Kerberos) in the future, so if you're interested please send
me an email.
