[Samba] Samba 3.0 PDC+LDAP

I've just moved our current Samba installation to LDAP (to try to combat
some other issues), and I've run into a large number of problems.  One of
them is that I'm quite new to LDAP.

I've made our entries to be:

I know that the 'Samba (v3) PDC LDAP howto' is out of date, and the Samba
documentation (the HOWTO collection) says that Samba uses posixGroup to
handle group mappings.

However, this is what I see when I do a 'net group':

    [2003/08/09 16:30:01, 2] lib/interface.c:add_interfac79)
      added interface ip= bcast= nmask=

    [2003/08/09 16:30:03, 2] libsmb/cliconnect.c:cli_session_setup_spneg633)
      Doing spnego session setupblob length=58)
    [2003/08/09 16:30:03, 2] utils/net.c:mai683)
      return code = 0

I can't see any groups, nor any group mappings.  Does anyone have any
up-to-date docs (even some notes) on setting up 3.0 to work with LDAP well?

I had tried the import tool, but it didn't actually /do/ anything -- I could
see the LDAP searches, but not the additions.
