Mount on startup (boot)....otherwise login can never happen.  Home
directory needs to be in place to login or you'll get a gazillion errors.

As for group ID....yes...I do, but you don't have to....depends on how you
wnat everything to be organized.

In the smbldap-installer scripts there are provisions for creating
different containers for different "class" groups....example...by
graduation year...grade level...etc.  

Another note:  Even though smbldap-installer utilizes Samba alongside LDAP
doesn't mean you have to use Samba....if I were you....try and experiment
with both FDS and smbldap-installer and find out what works best for you

As for Samba in FDS...see this 
http://directory.fedora.redhat.com/wiki/Howto:Samba   if you do this...let
us all know how it goes  :-)
