[Samba] ldap + kerberos or NIS+ for use with SAMBA -> centralized user management

Hy all! I want a Samba authenticated gateway, with centralized user management. 
For this, I want to use Samba 3.0, but I couldn't find out what to use for 
centralised management. Wich is the better solution? Using LDAP user management 
and kerberos authentication (in this case how to make samba to use an LDAP 
database and kerberos5 auth?), or I have to use NIS+? (I don't really want that 
coz with kerberos I can encrypt the whole data transfer. (I have wireless parts 
on the network, so it is a requirement.))
Thanx the help in advance!
