The author of the ISA replacement info is Mark Taylor. Provision of
services to replace ISA is his professional paid for work. Mark has
written this guidance which I have included in Chapter 11 of "Samba-3 by
Example" - due out March 26th.

The above link should furnish what you are looking for. If you are still
stuck after following that link let me know and I will help you.
