At The University of Queensland, they use Kerberos as a central
password store.  You should probably get in touch with them.
When I was working there, it was already setup.  Give my former
boss a call:

One common pitfall is time syncronisation - if your clocks are
out Kerberos will reject the ticket as being a replay - I recall
when I was a Sysadmin at UQ and student.uq.edu.au was rejecting
logins for this reason.
