I did that earlier from a tutorial I found out on Google.  Then I logged off 
of the machine and tried to log back in choosing "Other" from the login 
options.  Then I tried to log in with one of the test users I setup after 
the install and that worked on the Win boxes.  I just got the OSX shake and 
was taken back to the username and password fields to try again.  

Am I misinterpreting what the end result should be?  I am assuming that 
after setting up the LDAP server for authentication I should be able to log 
onto the OSX machine with a user from the server.
