RedHat distributes versions of nss_ldap and pam_ldap as RPM packages.
Lately, they were both being bundled under the nss_ldap name, look for it
in your CD, probably it has all you need (besides a copy of RFC2307
around, that is).

Otherwise, try getting it from PADL as Carlos Bote said.  RedHat 7.0
has everything integrated and you configure it with authconfig.  Pity
they did not put OpenLDAP 2.0, though.
