Larye Parkins suggested that I buy the book from
O'reilly.  I did and the book is a great help.  I have
modified sshd_config for AllowUsers but, since I am
using OpenSSH AllowHosts isn't supported.  I am
switching to Solaris 8 soon and will configure ssh to
work with the wrappers.

Thanks again to all who responded!
