Samba vs. NIS vs. LDAP

I've just inherited the job of configuring 4 servers in a small office.
Right now 2 of the servers are running RHEL 4 (IA64 systems) with
essentially no users. There will probably be 3 of us that will be using
the servers, but the other 3 in the office may at some point. The other
2 servers are Intel whitebox quad core Xeons that just arrived from
Intel yesterday. 

I was starting to set up NIS, but I was thinking of maybe LDAP would be
a better choice.  I don't expect us to have more servers than that.
They are really development machines.
