Ok, so if I understand you clearly, your advise is :
- first to have a user admin interface to put users in the directory 
(with inetOrgPerson to access to the userPassword attribute),
- then use the smbpasswd command, which first look for the user in the 
directory then modify it to be Samba-ready.
Am I right ?

Thanx so much for your help.
