LDAP not sure were i'm at ....


hi there i'm trying to get my LDAP server on my RHEL server going and honestly i'm not sure what i'm doing but i just keep googleing and searching and so far i've managed to get it started *YaY*. but now i'm drying to connect to it i've downloaded this LDAP browser from http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/~gawor/ldap/ and i'm trying to connect to it but i'm not sure of how the cn's& dn's and passwords and everything go together.

here is a read out of the files i think you need.

ldap.conf

# Your LDAP server. Must be resolvable without using LDAP.
host 127.0.0.1

# The distinguished name of the search base.
#base dc=redhat
base dc=redhat,dc=cathedral
dn: dc=redhat,dc=cathedral
objectClass: domain
dc: cathedral

slapd.conf

include /etc/openldap/schema/core.schema
include /etc/openldap/schema/cosine.schema
include /etc/openldap/schema/inetorgperson.schema
include /etc/openldap/schema/nis.schema
include /etc/openldap/schema/redhat/rfc822-MailMember.schema
include /etc/openldap/schema/redhat/autofs.schema
include /etc/openldap/schema/redhat/kerberosobject.schema
# courier imap
include /etc/openldap/schema/authldap.schema
# postfix qmail
include /etc/openldap/schema/qmail.schema

#prevents user froom looking at passwords
access to attr=userpassword,clearpassword
by anonymous auth
by self write
by dn="cn=admin,dc=redhat,dc=cathedral" write
by dn="cn=courier,dc=redhat,dc=cathedral" read
by * none
#files need access to this
access to attr=accountstatus
by dn="cn=admin,dc=redhat,dc=cathedral" read
by dn="cn=courier,dc=redhat,dc=cathedral" read
access to *
by dn="cn=admin,dc=redhat,dc=cathedral" write
by users read
by self write
by * none

#######################################################################
# ldbm database definitions
#######################################################################

database ldbm
#suffix "dc=my-domain,dc=com"
suffix "dc=redhat,dc=cathedral"
#suffix "o=My Organization Name,c=US"
#rootdn "cn=Manager,dc=my-domain,dc=com"
rootdn "cn=root,dc=redhat,dc=cathedral"
#rootdn "cn=Manager,o=My Organization Name,c=US"
# Cleartext passwords, especially for the rootdn, should
# be avoided. See slappasswd(8) and slapd.conf(5) for details.
# Use of strong authentication encouraged.
# rootpw secret

if there is some more information you need please tell me, or if you know a good how-to that starts at the basics, that'd be great too.

or if someone knows of a good graphical setup tool that i'd maybe get some idea of this with that'd be great as well.
