I seem to have it working now. I can connect to ldap server and add groups
and users.

Two problems and their solutions are listed below.

a. Stop the computer from freezing before the graphical login screen comes

Edit /etc/ldap.conf and change the following lines like so:
	uri ldap://
Edit /etc/libnss_ldap.conf and change the following lines like so:
	uri ldap://
	bind_policy soft

Test using:
ldapsearch -x -b dc=hkschool,dc=dyndns,dc=ws

b. Set up smbldap to automatically allocate id numbers.
(The script was complaining that it couldn't find the object that
gives the next id number.)

run #sudo smbldap-populate

I hope this is helpful for someone. I might have left out something. I have
been trying a few things over the last day or so, but I think the essential
points are given above.

So now I should be ready to go on Hardy.
