I'm using it to store posix and samba users, handles XP and 2k
authentication fine (dont have any 9x on the network,) All i'm doing is
runing a samba PDC for a small network, and am using ldap as it means its
easy to have a BDC if needed and using pam_ldap and nss_ldap i can
centralise my user database, anything that supports pam authentication is
authenticated again it (ie. the external ftp site, uw-imap, smtp auth
(sasl2 using pam) and shell logins where needed, as well as the internal
windows domain, (xp and 2k workstations, samba servers))
If your interested who uses samba and how many users  then look here
