I would really like to set this up on my upcoming project as well, but with
Samba 3.0 almost (but not quite) ready for production, I am hesitant.  I
know I can do it the "hard way" with all the great docs out there but I am
loathe to do so if next month or so Samba 3 is ready for prime-time.  So
what to do?  Stick with my Samba PDC as is and fight with all the other
items I want to integrate or press forward manually?  :-/

I guess a lot of us are in the same boat, but particularly the K-12 folks
who might want to have LDAP ready to rock before the new school year, eh?
