Thanks for your help. My rehat-ds serves Unix and MAC clients very well.
My goal is to let ds serve WindowsXP as well. I only need to let
WindowXP client to be able to use login name and LDAP password.
This is what I did:
1. add samba.schema LDIF to my redhat-ds and restart the ds server
2. on one of my linux LDAP client, configure and start SAMBA as DC
Then I am assuming it should work, but not. Could you email your working

If you are looking at the nt4 style then there is a great howto here:
But mind you it could be a good idea to actually look at the samba4,
it's getting pretty stable, I have installed it on a dev environment
where is serves authentication to the dev servers and dev clients and
has not given a day of shit really smooth installation also:
