RE: best book?

may i recommend *against* "Implementing LDAP."  it's light on concrete
information, didn't pass by an proof-reader & and the cutesy writing style
is slightly annoying.  On the other hand, "Understanding & Deploying LDAP
Directory services"  seems to be good.  i haven't finished it yet, but it
seems to be much more well-rounded tham implementing LDAP - appealing to Sys
admins as well as programmers - and is written in "text-book" stye rather
than "for dummies" style.

my two cents,
