Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

OpenLDAP is the most scaleable, most mature and most flexible, also the hardest to implement.
eDirectory non-free but a clear second place in all four of the above categories.
389 Directory Server coming up from behind surprisingly rapidly.
AD struggling towards scaleability despite a burden of windows-centric design.
Oracle struggling to retain customers for Sun's codebase :P
I am feeling very happy to be with a gang of people who can give a quick response and ripely towards the quires and questions. And i am thankful to Mr Thor, Mr jilagre, Mr Jeremy, and all in our community of Linuxquestions.org
