No and I must say that I had to completely rewrite my how-to last spring
due to the migration from Samba 2.x to Samba 3.  In fact, I spent many
weeks trying to "cross-reference" my old how-to for use in doing my new
set up on Samba 3.  The schemas are quite different....I eventually said
"screw it" and started from scratch again....once I did that and let go of
the older methods and thought processes I was able to progress quite
quickly.  Basically what I'm saying is that it may work for you, but it
may also simply be more practical to switch everything over to Samba 3.
