Does it *really* have that in the book???

access to *
        by dn="cn=rootmn,o=mydomain,c=US write"

Quite another thing is, that the server won't know it's root unless he
authenticates first, for example - before the above:

access to dn="o=mydomain,c=US write"
	by self write
	by anonymous auth

Now check that with the book and report back if the book says something
else ;)
