RE: Entry addition conflict

Well, sort of :-P.  I did have an entry ou=Groups,dc=personal-pc,dc=com.
When you asked that, I went to copy the entry to send to you, and realized
that it was Groups and the group entries were trying to add to Group, which
I realized were not compatible.  So, I deleted the entry and added it as
ou=Group,dc=personal-pc,dc=com, and then I added my group.ldif file.  Now it
works, thanks a lot.
