I have a -maybe stupid question regardin pam_ldap and Samba,and I really 
hope that somebody can help me.

I currently using pam_ldap so that users can login on the Unix machine 
with their LDAP userid/password.
Now I want to configure Samba so that he also uses that pam_ldap for 
that authentication. But please note that I only want to authenticate 
tru the LDAP, so nothing else is stored in the LDAP server.

Do somebody know if this is possible. If so , can somebody point me in 
the correct direction (what do I need to modify in smb.conf and 
pam.conf)? I already searched the whole internet for more information 
regarding this, but I could find anything similar which could help me.

Tnx in advance,
