Here's a tip from "that other guy."  :-)

The GUI administration tool is a Java app.  RH is working on making it 
work with GNU Classpath, so hopefully by RHEL 6 (meaning CentOS 6 as 
well), the entire stack will be Free.  But it nonetheless does work.

One other thing:  I took the class, and that gave me a good jump-start 
regarding how LDAP works.  But be forewarned that there is a learning 
curve with pretty much any UNIX-based LDAP out there.  That said, it's 
worth it.  Definitely.

Do you GNU <http://www.gnu.org>?
Microsoft Free since 2003 <http://www.cmosnetworks.com>--the ultimate 
antivirus protection!

I'd hate to give it up if there's a Free LDAP that doesn't suck.  I'll agree with you that Microsoft AD generally doesn't suck, but I really see some importance in the "Free-ness".
