um... why?
smb.conf is the samba configuration file and has little (or nothing)  to
do with LDAP
I would ask...
1) do the home directories already exist on a network device, so that
you only need them mounted locally?
autofs can be set up to use LDAP as well - so that would enable those.
2) if not, do you need to create a *local* directory whenever a user
logs in? look in  /usr/share/doc/pam-0* for the pam_mkhomedir module,
which can do this for you.
