I did not have any large problems deploying OpenLDAP the first time I tried 
it, using 2.0.x I think.

Are you referring to specific software implementing the LDAP protocol, or the 
LDAP protocol itself?

I find it quite trivial to get OpenLDAP working on any decent Linux

The admin guide was sufficient for me to understand how to set the software up 
correctly. However, maybe you have insufficient background knowledge of the 
LDAP data model etc., and think that for some reason the guide to 
administering the OpenLDAP server software should teach you everything there 
is to know about the data model, protocol, other software etc.

So, maybe you can start a new thread, and ask some real questions.
