NFuse / WI is the basic web portal stuff that talks to the farm, and
web-ifies (kind of) what is available via PN (well to be more accurate
PN agent sort of desktop-ifies NFuse / WI).

So it takes credentials, then checks the farm for what's available for
you (from a Citrix farm perspective), and presents it. It also deals
with client side ICA client availability, too.

It's eminently customisable, and is largely a ASP based application,
using Java, scripting and Citrix's own magicky stuff to interface with
the farm.

MSAM is basically a more involved portal solution, including CDAs (and
customisable by adding CDAs or web parts). It includes much of what is
available via NFuse / WI, but also true portal use of the web page, for
diverse other applications to be presented and used at the same time.
When I looked at it, the same degree of single sign on that you could
use with NFuse / WI on Win32 desktops was not possible - the password
manager software was pushed as the way of getting this sort of
