This will use the systems crypt to hash the password, you should find a
few others in the sample file ...

This should be your root DN, then you need to create a /etc/ldap.secret
in mode 600 and put your root DN's password into this ... you should then
not be ask for the old password. Becarful if you are using Samba, I did
this and the chat for Windows password changing changed my root password. I
would recommend that you keep a console open to fix anything that you might
change will testing that it works. I had to hack back into my box to fix
this problem ... hehehe ...
There are two other options, which I thought would have done this, but
can't figure what they really are for after using this, binddn and bindpw.
If anybody else knows, put it into the list.
