I've never been able to use ldapadd to modify an existing entry... how
would you do that?

With ldapmodify, you'd do:

ldapmodify -x -W -D "cn=Manager,dc=mydomain,dc=com"

That said, GQ or other viewers (there are a bunch of Web interfaces)
certainly do make it easier if you're not used to working on the command
