You might like the (treeware) book:

"Samba Essentials for Windows Administrators"

It's a straightforward, task oriented guide to getting it all up, running 
and manageable.
I bought it for my not so unix savvy IT brethren at work, and was surprised 
to find it's a pretty good reference for *nix / mixed admins like me aswell....

Buy it, read it, then see if you still think you need LDAP and Winbind for 
a samba PDC w/ a small network of 20 - 50 clients ;-)
