 Yes Adams thats what I whant to do.

  Albert give some points, now about the point where I need to
configure ldap inside my client (Centos), I need to run slapd inside
my client? or what SW i need to run? (I know that I need to run samba,
Albert say that I don't need winbind)

   In my client, I don't need to edit anything inside /etc/openldap/ ?
just /etc/ldap.conf?

   To get the users from my PDC, I have to edit the same files I edit
inside my PDC(nsswitch.conf, systems-auth, etc)?

   This is new for me, this is way I have a lot of doubts, I read the
manuals, but I still have some holes.

   Thanks for your support.

LIving the dream...
