getting a linux client to authenticate against OpenLDAP server

Hi there,

I'm trying to get a system in place for a single login amoung all my Linux clients, I hear OpenLDAP is the way to do this, i've setup an openldap server, but i'm wondering, how do I get my clients to authenticate to my openldap server?

you can use your linux LDAP client with PAM to autenicate against openldap and allow your users to login using there openldap username/password.

I've writtern a how-to for it on my website along with a Video how-to for it too.
