redhat 7.2 does not install the ldap-server programs, only the dev,
client, and base package. goto: ftp://updates.redhat.com/7.2/en/os/i386
or somthing like that, and get the latest and greatest rpms(including
the server one) then rpm -U them all.

Becuase you installed the openldap you are going to need to look at:
/usr/local/etc/openldap/ and /etc/openldap/ and /etc/ for your conf
files. Configure the ldap.conf in etc(you will notice it is different
than the other two), then configure either of the slapd.conf and
ldap.conf (s) in the other two locations, and soft-link them.  When you
startup the server with /usr/bin/slapd and use the tools in /usr/bin/ to
do editing. This should work dandy. good luck.
