CIFS and LDAP

I know this has been discussed ad-naseum but I'm looking for a quick anwser to my question and can't seem to find it…  I have Alfresco 3.2r CE installed on Redhat Linux Enterprise 5.  It's using LDAP authentication and syncronization working fine and I can log into Share and Alfresco content management without problem, however CIFS does not work.  I know CIFS does not work with LDAP, however it does work against the local Alfresco accounts. 

Since I have LDAP syncronization working (I can log in as admin and see all my LDAP users are created in Alfresco), shouldn't I be able to configure an authentication chain to then use local alfresco accounts for CIFS?  CIFS works for my admin user but not the users that were created via LDAP syncronizations.

So……  Is there any way I can have LDAP authentication (or syncronization) work for creating all my users, but also have CIFS authenticate against those users created via LDAP in Alfresco?  We use eDirectory for LDAP (ie not AD).
