Is the new server also a samba server?   You should be able to configure 
it as a workgroup server or domain BDC.

My experience is that if already have an LDAP backend, and if you are 
already using LDAP for unix level account management, that  the BDC is 
the better approach  since it helps keep all your Windows and Unix id's 
consistent on both machines.
