	Check sambaldap-tools (smbldap-tools) from IdealX, it
probably has what you want. :-)   Ignaciou Coupeau tutorials
are also nice (even if they are somewhat out-of-date). And of
course, the Samba By Example and Samba Official HOWTO are the
best and official source of information about it.

	Kind regards,
