It doesn't have to be done in Linux, all the security management and administration can be handled in NT/ASP, and just use an include file at the top of all secure LINUX pages to verify against a DB or cookie that the user has the proper authentication. We do this sort of think all the time. Lisa, if you would like someone to accomplish this for you, email me directly - if I don't have time to do it I know several people that have completed similar projects and may have the time to do something like that for you. I can even probably convince them to give you "List Rates". (meaning that since you are a fellow TheList member, they may cut you a break on the price. . . .)
