So, I'm casually trying to learn to use LDAP and Samba with Webmin. Granted I don't know how openLDAP and samba work internally,
I thought that webmin would be a good front end for learning.

I'd like to set up a windows file share on Samba and authenticate native windows accounts possibly
through openLDAP. I'm wondering if someone else has done this and might be willing to give me
some pointers.

this might help though:

May or may not be useful...but my entire home network uses nfs only, and I communicate and function fine between linux and windows machines. I find samba a bit like driving a tractor to a sport car rally.
