I don't think you'll find someone to do that for free (well, maybe,
but unlikely)... I mean, we are all willing to help you learn, but you
have to do your work.... doing the project for you is another thing.
If you are 100% dedicated to the project, try this:


and this:


You could have a LDAP up and working in 1 week or less, come back here
when you have specific questions that we can help you with, or get
paid support somewhere.  On distro selection for faster start-up, I
would suggest you try either Debian or Ubuntu, at least you will have
a "running" LDAP on package installation.  Service integration into
the LDAP directory is another history, and dependant on what you want
to integrate (and most projects that support LDAP have good docs on
integrating with the directory).
