Thanks a lot for your response. It seems that we can use more than one
object class. Though interested to know the objectclass:top.  Shall I
need to do any modification to slapd.conf  ( beside base DN and 
Administrative user/Password ) to work with ldap ?  I have followed this
sample ldif ( from net ) but phpldapadmin does not show me the entries

dn: dc=ceu,dc=hu
objectclass: dcObject
objectclass: organization
o: CEENET Workshop 2001

dn: ou=people,dc=ceu,dc=hu
objectclass: organizationalUnit
ou: people

dn: uid=scarter,ou=people,dc=ceu,dc=hu
