[Samba] Samba 3.0 + OpenLDAP 2.1 Saga (LDAP Attacks!)

Oh Wise Ones,

For the past two days, I have contested with the Samba documentation and
other sources of lore in a vain attempt to achieve Samba/LDAP integration.

My test system is running RedHat 9 with updates applied, along with OpenLDAP
& OpenSSL from redhat-rawhide, and the Samba 3.0.1pre1 RPM from the Samba

A couple of questions:

The HOWTOs instruct one to slapadd a file which, among other entries,

# Setting up container for groups
dn: ou=Groups,dc=quenya,dc=org
objectclass: top
objectclass: organizationalUnit
ou: People

Is it intentional that the container group setup references 'ou: People' or
is that a typo?

I've gotten as far as having Samba try to add a machine or user account.
Before I started again from scratch, I was as far as getting errors like:

Failed initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user
Failed to modify password entry for user

But everything else seemed to work - it was binding to the LDAP server, etc.

Any ideas?  Are the LDIF's in the HOWTO all that are necessary to setup an
LDAP server for use with Samba 3?
