This has relatively little to do with samba, it is an NSS configuration 
file. I've had a quick flick through the docs and I can't see any 
explicit instructions on how to set up NSS, only things saying that is 
needs to be done and that PADL nss_ldap is the preferred way of doing 
it. Presumable PADL have their own docs.
