> Do Samba and Samba TNG use the same schema?  

Seems that answer = no

Samba 2.2.2 schema is lighter than the on used on TNG (cvs from
the beginning of November) : only sambaAccount (users and workstation)
are dealt by 2.2.2. TNG have support for sambaGroups and sambaBuiltin

For Samba 3.0, it's another pb. It seems that 3.0 will use the Microsoft
Schema... I need to spend some time about it in the near future.

Most of what you're looking for is in the Ignacio Coupeau Samba + LDAP Howtos.
some other will (for now, few explanation exists, I'll update this asap) be 
written in the Samba-2.2.2 + LDAP PDC Howto, but 'specific' to Samba-2.2.2
