I will be testing this in a lab in the next few weeks and will gladly
assist in authoring a "Samba LDAP Domain HOWTO".
What does the timeframe for 2.2.3 look like? Having the HOWTO ready by

Additionally, I am migrating a production NT 4.0 domain to the Samba
managed domain and am willing to work with anyone on this as well.
"NT->Samba Domain Migration HOWTO" to come later..
