Ok, I just realized the answer to the question below is to change 
nsswitch.conf to use the rsbac modules.

Hello, is it possible to use the UM module and remove the passwd/shadow stuff 
AND not use PAM? To me it does not seem possible b/c then certain programs 
have no way of authenticating users.  If that is the case then exclusive UM 
can only be used if PAM is present and only with programs that understand 
PAM. Am I missing something?
