Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Any help or pointers would be really appreciated - I'm stumped by this:
We have stock RHEL 3 systems that use Winbind to authenticate users against Windows 2000 Active Directory servers. This works OK, but the winbindd processes will occasionally start to consume increasing amounts of memory without limit. Restarting the winbind service resets the memory use back to normal levels.
Winbind is set to run in double daemon mode with the option in /etc/sysconfig/samba, and the smb.conf files look like this:
# NT workgroup settings
workgroup = OURDOMAIN
server string = Samba Server
# WINS network browsing settings
# All functions disabled apart from using a WINS server for lookups.
local master = no
domain master = no
preferred master = no
wins support = no
wins server = 10.0.1.2
dns proxy = no
# Active Directory member
realm = OURDOMAIN.LOCAL
security = ADS
password server = ms-dc-01.ourdomain.local, ms-dc-02.ourdomain.local
# Enable Winbind for AD and local account synchronisation
winbind separator = +
winbind use default domain = yes
idmap uid = 10000-25000
idmap gid = 10000-25000
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
# Defaults for local accounts created by Winbind
template homedir = /home/%U
template shell = /bin/nologin
