Has anyone got this setup running?  Can you point me to a HOWTO?

I'm stuck with a problem in "smbldap_tools.pm" when I do any kind of basic
thing.  I keep getting this error:

vulcan root # smbldap-usershow.pl Administrator
Can't call method "search" on an undefined value at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.4/i686-linux/smbldap_tools.pm line 595.

Another thing that's puzzling me is the lack of PAM/NSS/LDAP intermingling.
I can't do a "getent passwd Administrator" and get a positive result.  Yet I
can cleary see that I have an "Administrator" account with "slapcat":

So basically I'm looking for any pointers at all.  :)
