Maybe the Samba 3.0 docs should be updated for this. Also would it be
possible to get user accounts from an LDAP directory and computer
accounts from another user database like the tdbsam_nua? This way the
LDAP directory wouldn't get filed with information that's only relevant
to Samba. Also is there a smb.conf documentation page that lists all the
configuration options for Samba 3.0? I'm installing Samba 3.0 and gonna
start testing with it a bit soon and I'm sure I'll have a few questions
