[Samba] Authenticate to existing LDAP server

I am on a college campus that has an existing LDAP server that I cannot 
change.  I would like to configure my Samba server to authenticate using 
the campus LDAP, however the LDAP server only has the "userPassword" 
field, and no Samba-specific entries.

I've got the Linux box on which the Samba server is installed, working 
great authenticating user logins against the campus LDAP.  Now I'd like 
to do the same for Samba.

Any ideas anyone?

Thank you!!
