    I'm sorry to bother you guys about this one again ... help me out on
this one please... =)

Let's say I have an entry in my ldap database like (using ldif format):

dn: uid=10051, o=organisation, c=country
objectclass: person
ou: people
cn: John Doe
sn: Doe
givenname: John
userpassword: secret
manager: uid=500, o=organisation, c=country
mail: doe@xyz.org
alias: john_doe

having nss_ldap and pam_ldap installed in the system and configuring it
in /etc/nsswitch.conf and /etc/pam.d/login I still find there is
something missing ... like ... how do I tell the system what ldap server
he should look for in order to make the queries and as well how do I
give him the credentials so pam is authorized to make those queries ...
I'd apretiate soem directions concerning that ... I also take this
chance to ask if nss_ldap can be used to retrieve only _SOME_ of the
user attributes ... like ... retrieve the name and the group id but use
the local system defined shell (in /etc/passwd).
Thanks in advance,
