[K12OSN] Broken repository or URL that affects smbldap-installer

Thanks for confirming this.  I added the --disablerepo=core  to the
distro_data.pm file in the smbldap-installer and it appears to work fine
now.  Feels like a hack, but at least it's just an installer.  I visited
the bug page....doesn't appear to be much movement on it....got any clout
with the RH guys or Fedora guys who can fix this?  It's an annoying bug...

The good news....with that and another thing I found and changed in
/etc/ldap.conf....it looks like smbldap-installer for FC5 could be good to
go.  I have it working on my laptop....and everything tests out
fine....squashed the messagebus issue....thank goodness I can read French 
:-) .  I've pushed my changes/findings up to Matt and hopefully he'll roll
out the new version later this week.  I know he plans to have it out
before NELS at UNH which begins Sunday.  There'll be very little
documentation to rewrite, but if there is anything to be added I will do
it as soon as we release.  The documentation is a wiki so it's easy to add
to.  I can do it at NELS.
