I tried every algorithm with phpldapadmin and compared the results from 
this with the results in the SambaNTPassword and SambaLMPassword and 
none of the results looked remotely the same.  So it appears to be more 
than a simple hash of the password.  The only one I couldn't check was 
the DES one. 
So it looks like I'll have to figure out the algorithm from mkntpasswd.
