I'm pretty sure at this point that it is a database issue rather than a 
config issue.  I set up Samba as a PDC beforehand, without LDAP, to make 
sure I knew how.  Everything worked fine then.  What I especially would 
like to know is where the SID comes from and how it relates to RID.  I 
note that there is no such field in my database that I can find.  My 
understanding is that it is figured using a formula of some kind?
