ubuntuNetwork Authentication guid & samba domai co


Hi I need to know how to set up network Authentication with ubuntu and windows machines. I have one ubuntu 1104 machine as proxy,dns,samba servers. Windows machaines need to be able to have their samba shares come up when the windows user logs on also need this for the other ubuntu boxes to. How do I do this? A gui would be good to would make thing easyer for me. also how do I use samba as a domain controler for the windows boxes? this is a small home/office network. Someone told me to set up a OpenLDAP Server would that work? again how do you do that with a gui for the user and how do i use samba as a domain controler for my ubuntu and windows hosts.

1 ubuntu 1104
1 lubuntu 1104
1 ubuntu 1004
1 windows 7
1 windows xp

severs on ubuntu only
