Re: newbie Q: xfer of data

Thanks Jim,
  Like I said, it's kind of a "newbie" question.  I actually worked that
solution yesterday after learning about ldif files.  I think I've got it
down :-)
  I'm pretty much diving into LDAP head first & was wondering if someone had
some recommendations for books?  IBM has a redbook on general LDAP that I'm
going through now (Understanding LDAP, http://www.redbooks.ibm.com).
Searching amazon/bookpool/fatbrain for cluebooks has yielded few results.
"Implementing LDAP, ISBN: 1861002211", and "Understanding and Deploying Ldap
Directory Services, ISBN: 1578700701" were really the only hits there.  Any
recommendations?  Replies should probably be off-list as this strays from
the software realm...

Thanks again,
