samba can do all of this with no trouble.

ldap is the way to go if you want to support services other than samba
on this machine.  I use it because i use ldap as an NIS replacement and
a backend for a groupware suite.

If you just want to support samba then you probably don't need ldap  -
you could use webmin tools to make user administration less intimidating
to the command line phobic.

lots of people are doing this - just ask the specific questions you have
as you hit problems.

I recommend you start with just samba - then add ldap later if you need
