Samba PDC BDC

My server is Centos 4.3, which is a DNS, NIS and Samba server. My workstations are windows 2K sp4. I have just purchased another server to be a backup server for the DNS, NIS and Samba services. I am a little vague and confused about what I need to do to configure a Samba BDC, what I want to achieve is; if the primary goes down the secondary will automatically pick up user authenication.

 I have read in these forums, on previous posts, that I need to go down the line of creating a ldap server. I nothing very little about Samba, but have managed to create the PDC Samba server,  and even less about ldap. Before I start ploughing through the howto's am I going down the right track?

Thanks, Mike

If the number of users is less than 100 then you can use tdbsam as your password database for authentication.

Here is a good reference:

I do have less than 100 users but tdbsam can't work in a PDC/BDC environment. Can it?
