FW: authentication problem

> hello all!!! I'm currently having a problem with authenticating through ldap server using a shadow password. I pasted a shadow password from /etc/shadow to my userPassword entry in my ldif file and added the user. And made changes to /etc/pam.d/system-auth to add pam_ldap, modified the /etc/nsswitch.conf to add ldap and also modified the ldap.conf and the slapd.conf files. I'm encoutering the error trying to bind as user (invalid credentials) I suspect that it failed in the comparing of passwords. I was wondering how come it failed. I used crypt {shadow password}.
