(ITS#6060) Admin guide doesn't describe converting from slapd.conf to cn=config

As noticed with Gavin on IRC, the Admin Guide doesn't have any obvious
instructions on converting from old file format slapd.conf to new cn=config
directory based conf - these instructions are only in the slapd-config(8) man

Please see above patch for a suggestion to incorporating it into the admin

I have taken some liberties with the formatting, please feel free to amend if
you like. I did put this in a top-level (H2) section, although it's short,
mainly to make it obvious in the guide's contents.

Any feedback is most welcome, particularly if this needs to be more detailed :)
