That's definitely what I would recommend.  In general it's a much
better idea to stick with tried-and-true solutions in high-pressure
situations.  Who's to say that even if you get Samba/LDAP working the
next problem won't be just as vexing?

One of the beautiful things about FOSS is that you have control over
your own upgrade cycle; nobody can force you to upgrade (unless you
have support contracts).  I understand the appeal of wanting to run
the newest stuff, especially since you will have other FC4/K12LTSP4.4
servers later and you'd like this one to match them.  But it's not
worth the pain you're experiencing, IMO.

Anyhow, I'm d/ling FC4 right now, but I won't get to testing it before
tonight, and in any case I'll only be testing the 32-bit version.
