Sure, that's the very reason I wrote the book "Samba-3 by Example" that has 
precise example network configurations with step-by-step instructions to help 
you get it configured.

You can purchase the book from Amazon.Com or download it from the Samba web 
site at:


Samba with LDAP is covered in Chapter 6.

I hope this helps you.
