I hope so. I have been googling for a starting point without much success, 
hence the desire to add some information. Indeed iit's not perfect, but it's
just a post in a mailing list, it's not a FAQ entry. And since people point 
out the mistakes in the thread, the curious reader should have everything 
needed at hand to succeed.

What do you prefer? 
1) The beginner find hardly no information, gives up after 2 days of 
failures, and will claim everywhere that OpenLDAP is the most frustrating 
software he had to deal with


2) It finds some hints with follow-up comments and can either screw his
setup by just copy/pasting without a though, or read the thread and find
the missing pieces he needs by himself.
