How about easier setup of pam_ccreds for cached credentials
(disconnected operation)? Mobile users with server-based authentication
would love that. Without much fanfare, the package shipped with FC3 and,
from my testing, it seems to work, but you need to tweak PAM's
configuration manually. The changes are trickier than you need for LDAP
or SMB authentication and, to add insult to injury, there's no
documentation in the package or anywhere on the web - grab the source
tarball and look at the pam.conf if you want to have any hope to get it
to work.

I already spammed Bugzilla for support in authconfig and anaconda, but I 
still have no idea if this is a feature that anyone cares about (how did 
it end up in FC3 in the first place, then?).

I assume the mention of the p655 means support for ppc AND ppc64? Just 
asking for a clarification. It's not clear right now which kind of 
PPC64 hardware can be used for a fresh install. I know because I was 
checking Raw Hide this very morning.
