Hi John, I have the exact opinion. I have tried several times setting up 
   Samba/LDAP on Redhat and Fedora, only to come to the same conclution 
as you. I ended up buying SuSE 9.2, and now it seems to work as a charm.

I just spent a couple of hours setting up a Postfix/Dovecot/Horde -> pam 
-> OpenLDAP solution with no problems at all. I'll hook up 
authentication from a Samba server to this server tomorrow.

My point is that it seems almost like SuSE had this scenario in mind in 
9.2, as opposed to Fedora et al. The reaseon I decided trying suse when 
giving up on Fedora was just the fact that John H. T. used Suse in his 
book "Samba 3 by Example". ( By the way; thanks John H. T. )

I'll still go for Fedora on my desktops and laptop tho, mainly due to 
apt-get and the fact that most software packages are availible as Fedora 

Do drop me a mail if you get into trouble on Samba/LDAP on SuSE.
