what kind of authentication are you thinking about? Windows domains
(Samba), secure login (ssh), NIS or what?

My guess is you want at least ssh-login to authenticate users to a
LDAP-database. Then you want pam_ldap and nss_ldap by PADL-software.

For your convenience install apt-tools for redhat and install
redhat-binaries via 'apt-get install <name-of-package(s)>'

Have you tried google at all?
