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.

We recently purchased SuSE Linux Enterprise Server. After we got the thing installed, I was very surprised to find proftpd wasn't on the CDs (pre-compiled).
I compiled proftpd with mod_tls and mod_ldap, and all is well... except the LDAP.
I can log in via ftp fine as a system user. However, SuSE prefers all the auth information in LDAP. I like the idea, but unfortunately, I've never used LDAP. I know what it is, but I have never worked with it.
Here is my LDAP portion of my proftpd.conf file:
# LDAP Authentication
LDAPDNInfo ou=people,dc=domain,dc=com passwd
LDAPDoAuth on "ou=people,dc=domain,dc=com"
I have verified that the people.domain.com is where the users are located.
I have tried it without LDAPAuthBinds and without LDAPDefaultAuthScheme, with no luck.
I'm assuming 'passwd' is the password used to access the server. I don't know though.
I'm also assuming it is comparing passwords to the 'userPassword' field of the user. I have had SuSE write the passwords to that field using 'blowfish' and 'DES' (linux default), all with the same results.
