We are not using TNG (at Morrison Industries).  We are using Samba 2.2.1a + a
patch to enable LDAP.  Samba 2.2.2 supports LDAP "out of the box" but rumor has
it that it has some bug.  I haven't really looked into this as 2.2.a is working
so well.

See my LDAP presentation at
for details of exactly what we are doing.
