Is the LDAP server going to to become the PDC? or do you want to migrate 
the existing PDC?

In either case, you need to extract your current user data and insert it 
into the LDAP server, setup NSS, and tell samba to use the new backend.

Unix systems need to be setup to do NSS and possibly PAM lookups through 
LDAP. The PADL *_ldap modules are the most popular way of doing that.

Samba by example at samba.org should get you up and running.
