[Samba] Samba-LDAP-PDC Howto

I found this quite usefull :-

I would recomend XFS over a patched ext3 for ACL support as you can download
a ready made redhat 7.2 kernel which you can just install and you also get
xfsdump which is a much better tape backup program.

Once the XFS kernel and the XFS tools (including the devel ones) are
installed you can compile Samba. I used the latest Samba_2_2 CVS code with
ldapsam and acl-support.

You will need to create the basic LDAP structure for your site and then a
user for Samba to connect as with the correct permissions.

Then use the above guide to setup the Administrator and nobody accounts and
things should work.

I have got Samba file serving on our new server but I have yet to test
adding machines to the domain.
