I second this.

I am attempting (unsuccessfully) to get an Open LDAP setup so that I can 
perform authentication across systems and services.

It would be ideal if there were an easy way to setup LDAP and via some basic 
questions, get you up an running.

I'm all for helping out on such an endevour (from the "what I need it to do" 
department and not the technical of LDAP.. which I am weak on).
