Hi Lucia!

I used that "how-to"

That worked fine for me with samba 3.4.4 and samba 3.4.5

If you prefer packages - you can add
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pgquiles/ppa/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/pgquiles/ppa/ubuntu hardy main

to your apt - source list and install the provided 3.4.3 packages.

Please keep in mind that there are differences between 3.0 and 3.4
(tdbsam, ldap-scheme, some config changes)!
