if you are using samba with "--with-ldapsam", samba is looking for the
lmPassword and ntPassword attributes in ldap. it is no problem to keep
this password in sync with a small script and samba set "unix password
sync = yes" in your smb.conf. if you really want to use the
unix-passwords with samba you must not use encrypted passwords :-(
read ENCRYPTION.html in the samba-doc package for this problem.

there is a way to authenticate windows-clients against the ldap server,
but this is much client-work. simply use the samba-ldap installation as
PDC and let the workstations join the domain.
see Samba-LDAP-HOWTO.html in samba-doc
