RFC [Samba/NIS + LDAP]


I am an OpenLDAP newbie, and have been doing some cursory examination of what might be possible with unifying authentication for my Linux and Windows boxes. I understand Samba can use NIS as a basis of authentication, and than the nss_ldap modules allows NIS lookups to be done against a LDAP directory. I currently have no windows servers (only a workgroup that I inherented), and am considering using the Samba 2.2.x codebase to implement a PDC/Domain with a LDAP backend that understands NIS (via the nis schema, from what I gather). Has anyone done anything like this? Any pitfalls? Howtos? URLs? :-)

Just exploring my options, I certainly hope to pick up speed quickly on OpenLDAP.
