Kerberos 5 works fine on Windows machines, and at NCSA we use Kerberized
POP authentication with a patched copy of Qualcomm's popper.  Works for
all Win '95, Win '98, and NT machines.

And of course, works fine for Unix, too.  :)

has all of our information and patches to the Kerberos source tree.  The
only thing you'll need to get rid of (maybe) is the aklog stuff -- it gets
an AFS token for the Transarc Windows clients.  I don't know how Coda
works with Windows, but presumably you could modify the code to work with
Coda instead.
