As an alternative, you can run several Samba instances from within Xen.
It was easier for me to set it up this way (on Xen), than to configure 
several Samba + OpenLDAP servers running on the same box.
Furthermore, if you have "unified" directory setup (i.e., software in 
the same directories etc.) on your Samba servers, this can be an 
additional pro.
