The LDAP support in Samba is still not production-quality, however you are
welcome to try it out.

Indeed I have written the Samba code to be compatible with RFC2307, so it should
work nicely with nss_ldap.

You need the latest CVS code (not Samba 2.0.0). Read docs/htmldocs/LDAP.html or
docs/textdocs/LDAP.txt for an overview.
