Yes, I did see these the other day, but I don't think that's quite what I
need - or at least, it's *more* than I really need.  I reality, I could
just use the M$ LDAP tools to dump AD and then import into OpenLDAP,
stripping out what I don't need.

That's good for our web developers, though I don't really want to do
queries to retrieve data.  The ADSI ADO is really for queries using the
COM objects.  But thanks for the pointers.
