A very admirable goal.  One thing about setting it all up, don't jump at 
everything at once.  Make sure that your LDAP setup is good and tight 
before adding samba.  That is, make sure that you've got your machines 
authenticating well with it, make sure replication is good, and you've 
got a secure (TLS) connection going first, if desired.  ONLY after you 
have the underlying system running well should you layer on samba.
