Jane was just forwarding to the list. ;)

BTW I think for the particular problem he is facing you would need 
someone with (some) admin experience, normal linux desktop users or who 
have a small home server don't have much experience regarding central 
authentication and such.

Ofcourse you might find those at a LUG as well. :)

Its also possible you have someone with Linux knowledge somewhere in town you dont know about. There are more people than one think that handles Linux very good. Many of those are not in admin positions but very glad to have the chance to tinker with Linux and make a contribution.
