I'm very interested in this thing too. I'm trying to use nss_ldap so I
can use a Directory to control my users. But I need some solution  for
NT accounts. may be I can use the Netscape Directory Server Sync.
Program To syng info between NT and LDAP. But I think that would be a
great idea to use samba instead of an NT machine.

	If anyone knows about LDAP support in Samba please tell me.
