[clug] ldap/active directory

I'm new to this list, so this is my first email.
I've installed Samba on a Ubuntu server and I want to share a file system, but  I need users to authenticate to access the shared file system.
My Ubuntu server is configured to accept user logins authenticating to our LDAP server, so I thought this would be easy - how wrong can one be.
So, can anyone tell me how to get samba to authenticate users to ldap, without making changes to the ldap server?
Or, would it be easier to user Active Directory?
