   OpenVision Technologies, Inc. has donated this Kerberos 
   Administration system to MIT for inclusion in the standard 
   Kerberos 5 distribution.  This donation underscores our 
   commitment to continuing Kerberos technology development 
   and our gratitude for the valuable work which has been 
   performed by MIT and the Kerberos community. 



Now, with that out of the way, let me point you to a few things:

The first file you should look at is doc/install.ps; it contains the
notes for building and installing Kerberos 5.  The info file
krb5-install.info has the same information in info file format.  You
can view this using the GNU emacs info-mode, or by using the
standalone info file viewer from the Free Software Foundation.

Other good files to look at are admin-guide.ps and user-guide.ps,
which contain the system administrator's guide, and the user's guide,
respectively.  They are also available as info files
kerberos-admin.info and krb5-user.info, respectively.

Appreciation Time!!!!  There are far too many people to try to thank
them all; many people have contributed to the development of Kerberos
V5.  This is only a partial listing....  

Thanks to John Linn, Scott Foote, and all of the folks at OpenVision
Technologies, Inc., who donated their administration server for use in
the MIT release of Kerberos.

Thanks to Paul Vixie and the Internet Software Consortium for
supporting the OV administration server integration work.

Thanks to Jeff Bigler, Mark Eichin, Mark Horowitz, Nancy Gilman, Ken
Raeburn, and all of the folks at Cygnus Support, who provided
innumerable bug fixes and portability enhancements to the Kerberos V5
tree.  Thanks especially ot Jeff Bigler, for the new user and system
administrator's documentation.

Thanks to Doug Engert from ANL for providing many bug fixes, as well
as testing to ensure DCE interoperability.

Thanks to Sean Mullan and Bill Sommerfeld from Hewlett Packard for
their many suggestions and bug fixes.

Thanks to the members of the Kerberos V5 development team at MIT, both
past and present: Jay Berkenbilt, John Carr, Don Davis, Nancy Gilman,
