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.

Still, the best approach would be to google for some step-by-step tutorials and if you are stuck at some particular point, you could post specific questions. The link I posted also gives you some theoretical background to it (terminology, etc)
Hi boss, its for class but i am administrator under training. Its not class exactly. Its for lab. Thanks.
When you post a response like this, it leaves people hanging. I would have expected that you would look at the link that Sycamorex provided, and then post something relevant to that information.
The standard homework response is that you should show us what work you have done and then ask specific questions on what you do not understand.
Have you installed the LDAP utilities?
Do you know where the configuration file is?
This reminds me of the old joke from the Peanuts comic-strip:
"Explain World War Two. Use both sides of paper if necessary."
More to the point, if you are in training, it is very important (both for you and for the fellow members of your class, as well as your instructor...) that you raise all of the questions that you have intheclassroom.
These questions are what the training is really all about, and if you've got questions, so does everybody else. An instructor relies upon this feedback to know what points need further emphasis. If you're going "out of band" to get help, you're unintentionally interfering with that process... to your own detriment.
