my problem is that i don't know what an "auxiliary object class" is?  is

okay so if i want the group acl to work what are the requirements, does it
just have to have the "member" attribute available?  like this:

objectclass ( x.x.x.x.x.x.x NAME 'myPosixGroup' SUP top STRUCTURAL
        DESC 'Abstraction of a group of accounts'
        MUST ( cn $ gidNumber )
        MAY ( userPassword $ memberUid $ description $ member ) )

and what do i use for the oid if i don't have registered space?
