If you're using ldapsam in 2.2 then you can't use the same 
ldap store with ldapsam in 3.  Many changes were made to the schema.
If you have just unix accounts in ldap on the redhat box you can add the
samba stuff to that datastore and use it from the debian box.

you can't do that with samba3 alone - it can be a member server but not
whatever the analog of a pdc is in AD.
