Thanks for the help guys!
As far as I can tell the built-in LDAP in SME doesn't really authenticate
but there is an beta LDAP install that adds the extra functionality. I
hopefully will get the K12Linux up and running this week and try it out.
I'll use the suggested http://wiki.contribs.org/Fedora7 for reference.
