I don't know, but I'd like to see LDAP authentication here (and
elsewhere in m0n0wall).  It would allow m0n0wall to easily integrate
with a Windows 2000/2003 Active Directory-based network.  That would be
a huge advantage for m0n0wall.  Especially for those installations based
around SBS 2003 (or even SBS 2000).

This question has been asked and answered before in this list - its in
the archives.  Here's the response...

+ You can't put anything in /usr/local/captiveportal as 
+ mini_httpd for the captive portal has been modified to 
+ always execute index.php as a CGI, regardless of which
+ file has been requested (this is necessary for 
+ transparent redirection). You need to put images on a 
+ separate server somewhere and then allow that IP 
+ address to be accessed in the captive portal config.
