Er, it would really help if you had specific questions. "can't get it done" is not very descriptive of the problem you're having.

hi chort!

I'm sorry for the poor description! I'm using RH8.0 as the server and the specs are as below:

I install all the software manually (unzip the tar file and run ./config follow by make, make install) but when i type rpm -q openldap, it srill give me the default version of openldap exixting in redhat 8.0 which is 2.0.x and not 2.1.17.

can you tell me where do i go wrong??

installing from source will not update the rpm database. if you want to remove the rpm one try:

rpm -e openldap or something.

installing from source does not affect rpm stuff and installing from srouce will not show up in rpm -q
