Does anyone have any suggestions for a tutorial or a how to for setting up LDAP or Openldap for the first time. 
I have managed to install Openldap using webmin, but it does not allow for creating OU (Organisational Units) unless I am using it wrong. I have the Tree (root) and I have been able to remotely connect with a LDAP browser but I have not created users or resources yet. 

I will be using it to authenticate Samba and mail users (either Zimbra or Open-exchange or some other groupware). and to have security groups for authenticating access to folders and printers. 
Using CentOS 5.2 

I am currently in the test/evaluation stage and using virtual machines (Xen) so I don't mind blowing the whole thing away and starting from scratch if required. 

Thanks in advance
