Yes you can.  However I used pwdump2 to suck the RID/SID info from the
PDC.  I preferred to do it manually so I just added the RID to the LDAP
Object.  The UID and GIG can be whatever you want.

Note: (I use Samba 2.2.8a)

BTW.   Please let me know if you get everything migrated and "working"
successfully with Samba3.  I was able to seamlessly migrate from a
WinNT4 PDC to a Samba 2.2.8a PDC without (much of) a hitch.  :)
