first post from me to the list and no I'm not an LDAP expert and I still

I have read a lot about LDAP and OpenLDAP in 2 Books and various
articles in Unix/Linux magazines.

Take a look at your local bookstore or Amazon, etc.

LINUX MAGAZINE has puplished an article about LDAP Authentication:

Part two: http://www.linux-mag.com/id/4124/

I think they are good for a start.

And there are a lot of other books and sources on the Internet, too.
