LDAP is an erector set and what you build is entirely up to you. There
is no one way, there aren't just 10 ways to use it but rather it is
entirely up to you, the admin to use it in any way you see fit and it is
only the RFC's that prescribe what it must do for compliance that it
seeks to serve.

That said, you are probably best off going to the Administrator's Guide
on OpenLDAP's own website for starting out...

http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin23/ (note the admin23 refers to
OpenLDAP 2.3.x which is I believe the version you are looking at on a
current Fedora)
