As for converting between my Win2k3 DC and Samba, one big reason to convert is that the win2k3 in question is extremely flaky.  It's strangely slow (too slow to be explained by the hardware and the load), and it tends to lock everyone's accounts occasionally for no adequately explained reason.  Usually we have to hit the reset button to get it to behave.  

The thing is, I don't _really_ want to replicate the Win2k3 active directory stuff.  All I want is to be able to provide 
1) unified login (preferably OS-agnostic)
2) network storage with login authentication
And I want to be able to do this without having to enter data for all 300 users by hand.  

Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
