I'm using LDAP Administration Super Tool which you can find at 
http://freshmeat.net/redir/last/5528/url_homepage/ . It is highly 
customizable, through templates, where you define attributes, check controls, 
and even can add java script to automatically fill some fields. You can also 
define which attributes are mandatory, and which are not. I'm using 0.7 beta, 
but there is also 0.8 beta in which you can define who can modify which 
attributes. Unfortunatelly there isn't a great deal of documentation for 0.8 
beta, which a schame, since it looks like a very promising tool.
