hi, sorry but you have to mess with ldap,
if you have a existing ldap server , you have to integrate samba schema 
first and then setup users , groups, computers,
but this can be done in many ways, i recommend to try ldap tools from 
idealix also included in the src of samba in a variation,
perhaps you can do a dump of your ldap to a testmachine and play around 
with this scripts having secure your runnig ldap will not be touched.
but you will have to read howtos
