If your users are Windows users you should add an '-a' here, and add the users 
with the '-a' flag. Like this:

	add user script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-useradd -m -a "%u"

You should add '-a -p' here:

         add group script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-groupadd -m -a "%g"

Perhaps yes... I have a Samba server with OpenLDAP acting as a PDC and we use 
dnsmasq as our DNS server. It's small, fast and deals very well with Samba 
and Windows clients. We use it also as DHCP server so all the machines have 
the correct IP, DNS server, WINS Server and so on.

One question... the user "mikelvm" is a regular UNIX user or one added with 
the smbldap-useradd tool?
