see the samba howto collection for how to configure samba

to have an effective samba pdc you need to keep a few things in sync
1) password database
2) netlogon share
3) user profiles

i use fam to detect changes in the latter two and rsync to synchronize

i use replicated ldap to handle the password database.

best wishes!
