[Samba] Need suggestion for domain controller

I would consider a newer Linux distribution besides CentOS 5.x  I have
worked with RHEL and Fedora.   I think (not 100% sure) that Centos 5.x comes
with Samba 3.0.x  If you want Win 7 client support you would want samba
3.4.x or 3.5.x.    Which means either a more current linux release or
compiling it your self.  I also found that on RHEL client that openldap
server components were not included.

considering below setups.

1) Samba PDC
2) OpenLDAP
3) Combination of Samba PDC + LDAP

     I am confused to select one among above.Can anyone please suggest me?
