Here is what I have found so far..

RedHat RHEL 3 supplies Samba 3.02 and smbldap-tools -0.7xxx which are not

Following the HOW-TO at IDEALX

To install the compatable smbldap-tools version get the new smbldap tools
, which requires the  perl-Net-LDAP rpm, which requires the
perl-Convert-ANS1 rpm and perl-Convert-BER rpm

Install in the following order

   1. perl-Convert-ANS1 (installed perl-Convert-BER with ANS1, don't know
if it did because I had already downloaded or what)
   2. perl-Convert-BER (if not already installed by number 1 above)
   3. perl-Net-LDAP
   4. smbldap-tools-0.8.4

smbtools are installed in /usr/bin. Modify smb.conf to reflect this location.

Here are the links to the above references:
