Don't use webmin, can't help you there.

Apache is a piece of cake to set up to use LDAP for auth.
Depending on what mail software you're using, it may fall out of nss
integration. Cyrus, which I use, requires a certain amount of hoop

ftp I just don't use on general principles any more.
samba is an interesting one---you should be able to set up a full PDC
running off of LDAP, etc., but I have no direct experience.
