Wow, a bunch of them. Can you tell me how to restore these files from
the CD? I looked for a document for this on the FreeBSD site, but
haven't been able to find yet.

Also, since you're a Heimdal guru and use FreeBSD yourself....just would
like to understand what FreeBSD does by default. You said that it loads
Heimdal by default and I now know why it seemed like it was already
installed when I first started messing around with it. The reason I used
the port system is because I was trying to get LDAP backend working, and
still not working :( I'll worry about getting that going once I get
things back to normal.

I guess the default installation of Heimdal does not place Kerberized
system files like the port does? Also, I noticed the /etc/rc.d/kerberos
and /etc/rc.d/kadmind do not start anymore after the port install, now
using /usr/local/etc/rc.d/kdc.sh and it starts fine. Are the other two
not starting merely because the files are no longer present and they
should start -or- are they replaced by the port version? I have this in
my /etc/rc.conf:


Again, I really appreciate your guidance on this, I know I am close to
correcting my previous mistakes.
