FDS is definitely something to be working on.  But you're spot-on with
the fact that it currently only runs on RH-based OSes, and remember
that it still needs Samba to authentication Windows machines.  There's
a how-to (which might look familiar) here:
http://directory.fedora.redhat.com/wiki/Howto:Samba

FDS is a potential replacement for OpenLDAP, not a replacement for
"Samba/LDAP".

Also, it still uses the Berkeley DB so it can't be more robust than
OpenLDAP in that respect (though I don't have any depth of knowledge
about how the two projects actually use BDB).
