First you setup a new Samba DC, according to the Wiki:
but without the privisioning step.

Then you join the new DC to the Domain:

Because Samba currently doesn't support the replication of the SysVol 
share, you have to move the content from the share to the new DC (if you 
plan to keep the Windows server, you have to find a workaround to do the 
replication, like with rsync).

If you want to shutdown the Windows DC in the end, you have to transfer 
the FSMO roles ("samba-tool fsmo ...").
