Re: getting very frustrated with lack of success


Perhaps, you could give setup instruction (step by step ) for setting up
Redhat 7.2 which is the latest version of the popular Linux operating
system.  I have used the documentation on your site for openLDAP and it is
the most useful I've found on any site so far.  I wish you had the same for
setting up Redhat 7.2 Linux.  I went to Redhat site and couldn't find a
single piece of information to help me get my setup going!
