[K12OSN] Question regarding LDAP

I have been "gonna" install LDAP in our district for 2 years now, but
I've always stuck with NIS, because it *just works* -- the new LDAP
scripts I've heard about, do they really make it not-too-difficult to
set up LDAP authentication that allows users to change passwords, etc?
Since it's summer, I want to reconfigure lots of things, and having a
centralized addressbook would be a nice add-on feature. I'll admit,
I'm hesitant to leave the security of NIS, but I think it might be
the right time to make the switch.
I don't really need to have windows active directory compatibility
(thanks to pgina!) -- but there might be other reasons that make it
Lastly, does any one know if ipcop/dansguardian combination will
authenticate against an openLDAP server?
