If you dont need to user ldap to skip the driving. Just login with ssh and
do an ordenary smbpasswd -a username. You can also have a single domain
with some supporting servers for shares in each location. The pdc can then
be located somewhere and you can then tunnel the samba ports over the
internet. Login querries doesnt require that much data to be sent.

Thats just an ide. Depending on your company size it might work
