I have a couple questions that you can hopefully answer.

1.  Is there a version of your kerberos for mac os x application that 
works on 10.2?
2.  I am currently running your v 4.0 on Mac OS 10.1.5, 
works great. able to get a ticket like stated.  However I would like to 
use that ticket when connecting to a samba server.  so when i run the 
mount_smbfs command it will use the ticket instead of me typing in the 
In the end we are looking to mount the users home file directory with 
samba and use kerberos with it for security reasons.  Is there a way of 
doing this?  and can it be done when the user is at the login screen?
i want some how get the password from login(when user logs in to OS X) 
and use it to get a kerberos ticket and the use the kerb ticket to mount 
the samba volume.
Hopefully i explained this so you understand it somewhat.  let me know 
if you need any more info. Any help at all would be great.  Thanks in
