Thanks Stephanie

I am a bit weary to do a special compile of samba as this would possibly 
get broken when the system next updates the samba server via yum.
I understood that samba v3 did support LDAP as standard out of the box. 
I may guess that there is no way round this at the moment for us.

Many thanks
