    Dell latitude d630 with smart card reader.
    I want to use a smart card for authentication without a CA.
    I kind of wonder if I can use any smart card of my choice (gas, groceries, credit) as an authentication device.
    Can WinXp read the card, confirm my request to use it, and drive on?
    Again, I want to use a self cert, or un-cert, card, a one-off card, as auth for my laptop.
    Any suggestions?
