Basically, you can not. There is *too* much underlying detail in NDS
4.11 and no ldap interface that I know of (others might correct me :).

1: Upgrade NDS 4.11 to eDirectory 8.x
Use nldap.nlm
Import a subset of eDirectory 8.x into Openldap using ldif or whatever
you find most handy (like GQ)


2: upgrade the whole NetWare thing to eDirectory 8.x across platforms
like NetWare, Linux, Solaris (allrecent), Windows thingies, AIX

Use nldapd with ldap connectivity to integrate with Samba
