LDAP support does work on older Samba versions.  The howto that I read
recommended getting Samba via CVS from Oct 15, 1999.  This is sited as a
stable version of Samba that supports LDAP.  The latest releases (as far as I
know) have LDAP disabled in them.  From what I gather, the code isn't ready
for use yet.
