[Samba] NIS schema clash

Hi list,

I'm trying to set up an OpenLDAP server to provide the goodies for samba
and postfix running on the same box - SUSE 9.2 Pro

The trouble start fairly early, unfortunately.  I'm following the
idealx.org documentation, which suggest using samba.schema as well as
inetorgperson.schema and nis.schema.  (John Terpstra's book suggest this
as well).

There seems to be a conflict between schemas.  I get the following
message when starting the ldap server:

Starting ldap-server /etc/openldap/schema/nis.schema: line 40:
Dubplicate attributeType: ""

If I disable the nis.schema, I don't get the error and openldap starts
cleanly.  Is it safe to disable the nis schema, or is it necessary for

Kind regards
