that's what it was like back in 98.  Back then I even had a bit of a 
clue on how to develop LDAP schema.  Not sure what the current fashion 
is today.  Skirt lengths, I mean LDAP schemas change so quickly.

Al's post makes it look like if you follow exactly the right pattern, 
you will get the right results.  Deviate even by the slightest amount 
and you'll end up with a fiery unpleasant death.

yup, that's LDAP.  after five years or more, one would think folks could 
make this work without trying hard.  And no, I'm not going to do it, I 
can't afford to work for free anymore.

I will give that a try as well.
