If you prefer not to trust development code with your files, you can
set up a domain with a Samba-TNG domain controller, and have a
Samba-2.0.7 file and print server as a member of that domain, along
with all your workstations.

The smbpasswd file has a different format in TNG, but I believe there
is a tool that will convert it for you.

Samba TNG is fairly straightforward to set up and get going; the URLs
Jamie provided are where I got all my information initially, and I
had a TNG domain up and running nicely in about an hour and a half,
including the time spent compiling it.

Most importantly, have fun!
