> easy task thanks to PDC-BDC function. But how to replace PDC with Samba?

Maybe this way is possible with samba-tng, which has some bdc-funcionality.
Maybe you should ask this on their mailinglist (www.samba-tng.org).

If you can get it, cool.. store it in (yourprivatedir)/(YOURDOMAINNAME.SID)

AFAIK you need this if you are a member of a domain, if both exist, you will
get trouble.

Samba calculates RIDs from UIDs.
