Everyone is getting confused....I'm familiar with what he's trying to
do....he's trying to implement the Samba/LDAP as outlined in my how to at
http://web.vcs.u52.k12.me.us/linux/Samba-LDAP.pdf   We're also working
with scripting the whole Samba/LDAP install.  Done correctly....it just
works.  My suspicion is that something is firewalled off.  Samba/LDAP is
an excellent method for centralized authentication and if it's set up
right....all you do is set up authconfig with the correct values (see the
how-to) and away you go.  All the users and home dirs live on the
Samba/LDAP server.
