You would not use ldapadd with slapd running.  Use slapadd.  Have you walked
through the simple "Quick Start Guide"  I believe it addresses quit a few of
the issues here plus it gives you some needed experience.  It shouldn't take
much time.  It can be found at http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin/quickstart.html

If you've already done this, I apologize because I got to the thread a bit
late and haven't read the messages previous to this one.
