[Samba] Seeking documentation for SAMBA3+LDAP but NOT PDC

Hi there,

I would like to build a _simple_ server for sharing files, using Samba3.
I use FreeBSD5, the machine works well with ldap, nss_switch, pam_ldap.
Users can login (ssh) using the ldap account : perfect.

Now i want them to access some file/shares using SMB with Samba3, using
their LDAP account.

BUT : **I don't want to turn this simple server into a PDC machine**
This would be overkill for my needs.

Is there a documentation around (I've been really searching) that would
help me build a SAMBA3+LDAP server NOT acting like a PDC. I just want to
have my users identify using their LDAP account, not more.

Any documentation found are huge tutorial spending a lot of energy
building a secured PDC server, which is not what i want  ;)

Thanx for your help,
