[Samba] Samba with LDAP Intergration

	I am trying to work out if the current setup is possible:
I would like to have Samba running to authenticate shares for /home 
directories running under FC6. All of my users are posixAccount's in an 
LDAP Directory.

I would like to use this information to authenticate these shares but 
without making any changes to the LDAP Directory itself (so including no 
new objects or schema changes).

Is there any way to do this? All my previous attempts have led to the 
Samba server doing a search on objectClass=sambaSamAccount which I of 
course would rather not have. Is it just possible to use the standard 
password attribute for authentication? Does anyone have a sample setup 
of such a situation?

Thanks for any help and let me know if you require any further information.
