Brian did you take a moment to think you should have a look at the Samba
website. There you will find the official how to's - the ones that everyone
should use instead of 3rd party crap.
Samba 3 By Example covers ldap step by step; almost fool proof.

I just upgraded our company's network from a system created 6 years ago (NIS
and SMBPASSWD) to an up-to-date one (for 2006, at least) including a central
LDAP server. It was a far from painless experience, so I thought I'd write
up the experience in the hope that it may help others. If I've left
anything out, please let me know. mailto:bcwhite at precidia.com (or if I've
left there, mailto:bcwhite at pobox.com).
I used my own "cfile" utility (http://sf.net/projects/cfile) to manage all
the configuration files across multiple machines. I hope to package it up
for Debian soon.
Here's what I did... Note that I'm using Debian 3.1 as my installed system.
