I searched Google, and found the following link:
If MacOS X can authenticate using Samba, you can simply (actually, it's
not that simple..) configure the Samba server to authenticate using the LDAP server.
Hope this helps.
On a related note; the AppleShare server for Linux (netatalk) supports
PAM, and therefore LDAP. :)
