This should be in the documentationn in samba.org.

In general:

You need an LDAP backend for samba.   Probably should have an LDAP 
backend for unix accounts as well.

The smb.conf file be similar to PDC

             # this is a DC
             domain logons = yes
             # but not the PDC
             preferred master = no

Set the SID's to match the domain SID

             net get domainsid
             net setdomainsid S-1-5-21-AAAA-BBBB-CCCC
             net setlocalsid S-1-5-21-AAAA-BBBB-CCCC

Join the domain

      net rpc join -S PDC -W MYDOMAIN   -U Administrator

start samba
