Keep in mind that FDS is currently a work-in-progress of merging the
Netscape Directory Server into Linux.

The first release may not have been integrated with Samba
out-of-the-box, but I wouldn't be too shocked if the next release did
include the Samba schema by default.

Even in the first release, integrating FDS & Samba is not too much
different than integrating OpenLDAP & Samba:


FDS is not a 100%-clean drop-in replacement for OpenLDAP, at least not
yet. But it is not too far off. In the little bit of playing around with
it that I did, it didn't take me too long (2-3hours?) to have my entire
OpenLDAP database (15,000 accounts) imported into FDS & integrated with
Samba, OSX, etc. No major trauma.
