Please check chapter 6 of the book "Samba-3 by Example". If anything is not 
clear or does not work please contact me, I'll help you to get this working.

You can purchase this book from Amazon.Com or download it from:

You will need to use the latest version of the Idealx smbldap-tools from 
www.idealx.org. If you wish, give me a call on (801) 936-1368 and I can 
provide more info on how you can easily and rapidly set up Samba on SUSE 9.2.
