I spent a lot of time writing a book that documents how to make Samba-3 do 
what users want it to do. The book is called "Samba-3 by Example". It is 
available from Amazon.Com and has ISBN 013188221X. Alternatively, you can 
download the PDF from:


Chapter 5 comprehensively documents Samba-3 plus OpenLDAP. If the information 
does not meet your needs please let me know so I can fix it. I dispise 
documentation that is inadequate or ineffective, so any help you can give me 
to make this book more useful and more helpful is most welcome.
