Probably just need to run authconfig again and uncheck the "Use LDAP"
boxes. If you can't log in as root due to the broken authentication
config, you may need to boot into single user mode :

I can't give you a step-by-step, but I'd be looking at the documentation
here:
http://www.apple.com/server/documentation/

In particular, the "Open Directory" document for LDAP authentication and
"File Services" for exporting an NFS share point.
