Well, for starters, there is FAQ (http://www.openldap.org/faq/) and the
mailing list archives (http://www.openldap.org/lists/).  If you don't
find what you need there, post to this list.  That's want it is for.

For OpenLDAP 1.x, the best guide is the old U-Mich guide.

Note: we have a effort underway to rewrite the guide.  We need help.
Volunteers writers and editors are encourged to contact

I assume you are referring to protocol versions.  OpenLDAP 1.x
implements LDAPv2+.  OpenLDAP 2.x implements LDAPv3 (and LDAPv2+).

I believe the U-Mich guide is a must read as it does contain a good
deal of useful information.  I also recommend that new users browse
the FAQ and list archives before they actually have questions.
