I use the Windows NT 4.0 tools Window Manager for Domains and Server Manager
to manage users and servers on my Samba domain.

These GUI tools interface with the smbldap-tools .

I set up LDAP and Samba in the normal way.  I use the smb-ldap tools to add
and remove users and machines.

I place the User Manager for Domains utility on a Samba share and access it
from a Windows 2000 or XP workstation.

I add computers to the domain the same way I add them in Windows.  I go to
My Computer, choose properties and join the domain.

Samba works quite well for us.
