We have been using a slightly customized version of netreg for over 
2 years now. It involved some minor mods to force authentication against our
campus kerberos implementation. We also added a few piece to communicate with
our accounts database, and an account activation system that was developed in

We have had success using it for 10,000+ registered students per semester
in our res halls. It makes it considerably easier in tracking down systems
by student/mac addr. Many of our other tools also rely on the username-mac 
addr mapping in the dhcpd.conf.

If you have any other questions about specific implementation details, feel 
free to contact me directly.
