Another option is using webmin and using the clustering users and groups 
function of webmin.  I have one machine that does all my files with 
users.  That machine does a  nfs share of the /home directories to 
another a k12ltsp 4.0.1 server.  I used the clustering users & groups 
and transferred all users with uid's above 500 to the k12ltsp. I mounted 
the /home on my k12ltsp and good to go.  I'll like to get openldap 
working myself since as you can see by my signature, I handle a bit, and 
with ldap in combination with samba and netatalk, I could manage and 
utilitize my server resources and users more effectively. Unfortunately, 
time isn't in my favor.

Not quite an answer to your samba/ldap, but another option I guess.
