Have a look at Samba 3 by Example.

Chapter 9 tells you how to do this.  You may also want to look at Chapter 5.
This has info. on using LDAP with Samba 3.

You can migrate all the user and computer info. from your NT 4.0 PDC
straight to Samba.  When you shutdown your NT box and activate your Samba
box, the users/client machines will not know the difference.
