Maybe this was just ignorance on my part, but when I first heard of it I
thought this would be as simple as a yum install fds or something similar. It
has been a few months since I looked into it but I remeber it being very
scary. It seamed a person had to be a wizard of LDAP to understand hwo to
install and configure it. I am of course comparing to the SMB/LDAP install
scripts where knowledge needed is minimal.
I really liked the idea of using FDS, but at the time there was way too much
knowledge involved and what didn't look like a prepackaged solution. I had
initially assumed this was a yum install and use with a nice gui sort of
Again my hold up was most likely a lack of knowledge and the fact I was
looking for a quick turn key solution.
