So if I', only using LDAP to authenticate for Samba, I should only have to make entries for lmpassword and ntpassword right? Which hashing algorithm is lmpassword in? md4? THanks!

No, as far as I know, a corresponding posixAccount object (vulgo: user) is needed because the files and folders (rights) are still managed by the underlying system (unix).

see the HOWTO at http://samba.idealx.org

In the latest development version of samba you don't need the posixAccount anymore (AFAIK), for the computer-accounts you definitley don't need it anymore.
