it sound like to me you need in your smb.conf file

ldap machine suffix = "ou=computers,dc=blah blah" 

ou is what ever you called your unit for storing computers. it may be users.

I'd like to trow myself into the same disussion...

I'm also trying to get Samba 2.2.7 working from LDAP. So far I can see the
users/groups in LDAP, but there is not way I am able to get W2K Pro machines
to join the domain. Every time it comes up with a "...The account used is a
computer account...." when trying to join the domain. The machine account is
actually created in the LDAP tree, but for some reason the process does not
finish. I'm at a loss as to why this is. I'm using "add user script =
/usr/local/bin/smbldap-useradd.pl -w %u"

I've looked around on the samba mailinglists etc, but I've so far been
unable to find a solution to this problem...
