[Samba] non-local accounts...

I am having problems, can join domain, add users, etc, etc no problem 
using samba 3.0.6 and ldap 2.2.17, have the ldap working fine with samba.

The problem is that I cannot get this to work without having local unix 
accounts.  We are setting up a domain between 32 locations  (zero 
budget) , and of course want to just have our ldap directory replicate 
itself, not have to add local users.  Totally unix pdc/bdcs, not active 
directory at all.  

What is the easiest way to add ldap users without having to add local 
accounts as well?  smbldap-tools is giving me
 >failed to perform search; No such object at 
/usr/local/sbin//smbldap_tools.pm line 229, <DATA> line 283
errors, even though the conf files seem correct in every which way.

Any help would be appreciated.
