I think so. The docs I am looking at are at 
http://samba.mirror.ac.uk/samba/docs/man/, which is apparently what 
you're referring to, though the docs seem to be for v2.2.

There is no reference to scripts in the docs for samldap, and I see no 
error messages saying that anything is missing.

Not yet - I don't want to fiddle with anything unix wise until I get 
Samba working. Is it required for Samba to work?
