I've just built a Samba 3 / OpenLDAP server using the brilliant installer that Eric & Matt have created.

The initial install took about 30 minute & the script 5 minutes.

The only thing I did slightly different was to do a minimal install of FC3 and the used YUM to 
install the OpenLDAP stuff and the rpm's from the Samba site to get the very latest versions.

If you like a copy of my ROUGH notes I made dureing the install let me know and I'll try to get them 
typed up and mailed over.
