I'm still grinding away on other projects, but I managed to get in a
little bit of work with samba 3.0 today.

I've been dumping my documentation and packages here:


The README lists the steps that work for me.

There are a number of rough edges and few nicities missing, but I see
the light at the end of the tunnel... which is a good thing since I want
to start my samba 2.2 -> 3.0 conversion by Friday ;-)

The ldap-scripts package has a couple of scripts that add/delete/modify
users and groups located in /usr/share/ldap-config/. They are named
luseradd, luserdel, etc and behave like useradd, userdel, etc.
