Linux PAM Documentation

For questions about PAM you might have a look into the documentation here: "The Linux PAM Guides" It's a "must read" for all who want to change something in their PAM configuration (..and you have to, if you want login by fingerprints). But in my opinion it's one of the most incomplete and unintelligible documentations I know, and thus a permanent danger to the security.
