I've finally got samba working with LDAP and keeping the password
attributes in LDAP synchronized no matter where the password change
comes from.  I think this is what you mean.  I intend to write a more
thorough howto for this sometime in the near future, but if you'd like
I could prolly get you up and running sooner.
