FWIW, I've just given a presentation to the local Linux Users' Group on 
this subject, based on notes made during my own installations. Until 
Samba 4 comes out (which includes its own "LDAP" style backend), we'll 
have to live with the nightmare that is Samba + OpenLDAP.

Once the notes are published, I'll notify this list too - then there 
can be another document for people to get confused by in addition to 
the material by Terpstra, IDEALX, et al ;)
