[Samba] Question about switching from Windows 2k Server to SAMBA 3 under Centos

Greetings List,

I'll begin by outlining what it is that I have to do. First, I have a  
windows 2k server that is currently on its last legs. It holds a list  
of users, groups and shares that are still required after the  
migration to a Linux based server.

I've heard of a command called 'vampire' that extracts the required  
users and groups, though as of yet have been unsuccessful in getting  
this to work.

I've also setup an OpenLDAP server with LDAP Account Manager and can  
input data manually, though for some weird reason, vampire just  
doesn't want to work.

My questions are:
1) What is required for the smb.conf to get it talking to the windows  
2k server?
2) What other environment configuration is required to get vampire to  
work correctly?
