list. In other words I want to set SAMBA up so that it uses the LDAP
database instead of the /etc/passwd database....
Also I am looking for a way to set up the SAMBA PDC so that when a
machine account is created it puts that account in the LDAP database in
ou=machine instead of ou=people...... I am comfortable with running
SAMBA 3.0 CVS if that is what is needed....
