As a test (on a temporary virtual machine), I tried using the smbldap 
installer scripts with CentOS5 and I was able to get it to work. I wish I had 
taken notes, but as I recall I added/activated the "rpmforge" repository and 
installed the dependant packages *before* I ran the script, choosing CentOS 
4.4 as the installation target. The idea was to minimize the number of 
packages that smbldap-installer had to fetch by installing the versions that 
were correct for CentOS, leaving only the configuration steps for the scripts 
to perform. At any rate I was able to get it working.
