I'm using Samba and OpenLDAP and it seems to work just fine although I 
am having trouble figureing out why it wont add a machine to the domain 
"automagically".  Basically the system is not executeing the "add user 
script".  I've seen this error mentioned on this list but I've yet to 
find the answer.  I do think that eventually I will.

To Andrew:  How did you configure ssh?  That doesn't work for some 
reason.  I think I missed something somewhere.  Logs into a Linux box 
just fine though.
