I agree, I've found exactly this PDF-File to be a very valuable
ressource, too.


is the exact URL, but there are other documents related to LDAP on the
Red Book site, that you might find interesting.

I even read some chapters from a book published by Microsoft Press (am
I doomed now? ;-) focussing on Active Directory. I also found it to be
very valuable, because it had a deeper look on the information model
and general concepts related to centralized directories, replication
and how to organize the information the tree. It was a written in
German, so I'm not sure if it could be helpful for you. But this might
give you a hint where to find other information. It will not help you
install the software on a Linux-system ;-), but maybe give a more
general overview on the whole topic.
