[Samba] LDAP & winbind

I have been searching a bit for documentation on the use of LDAP in
conjunction with winbindd.  Can anyone please point me to further
documentation (if it exists) on the use of these two products together
in Samba 3 and what functionality they provide as a whole solution?  I
know how winbind works but I am confused about the LDAP backend.  Can
winbind populate (and keep updated) the LDAP directory?

As a little background...  I have a Win2k PDC and am adding two new
Redhat 9 Samba 3 servers.  Does it make any sense to have LDAP in this
environment?  Winbind too?

Thanks for the help!
