A linux server will become primary LDAP server and also Windows 
PDC, using samba that talk to the LDAP server. Windows clients 
will login using this PDC. So Windows client will login from the 
LDAP using the samba as "gateway". There will also be some 
backup LDAP servers that act as BDC as well.

Hmm, I have to read more. Did you mean Samba will act as 
Kerberos authentication server, and therefore if I have LDAP as 
Samba authentication backend, I can get OpenAFS to authenticate 
to Samba?
