Bad DN starting slapd


Fist time trying with openldap

Where is the deal I used an article from LJ to gude me to my first ldap server, but one of the restrictions is giving me problems at startup of the slapd deamon.
I google quite a bit and it does seem to be ok.

here it is the slapd.conf.

database        bdb
suffix          "dc=merce,dc=com"
rootdn          "cn=mago,dc=merce,dc=com"
# 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
# rootpw                {crypt}ijFYNcSNctBYg
rootpw  {SSHA}JbhEXhI+tjTT3Wz958GezXi/ey0KRBHL
# The database directory MUST exist prior to running slapd AND 
# should only be accessible by the slapd and slap tools.
# Mode 700 recommended.
directory       /var/lib/ldap

# Indices to maintain for this database
index objectClass                       eq,pres
index ou,cn,mail,surname,givenname      eq,pres,sub
index uidNumber,gidNumber,loginShell    eq,pres
index uid,memberUid                     eq,pres,sub
index nisMapName,nisMapEntry            eq,pres,sub
index sambaSID                          eq
index sambaPrimaryGroupSID              eq
index sambaDomainName                   eq

#Users restrictions
access to attrs=userPassword,sambaNTPassword,sambaLMPassword
        by dn="cn=mago,dn=merce,dn=com" write
        by self                         write
        by anonymous                    auth
        by *                            none

access to *
        by self                         write
        by dn="cn=mago,dn=merce,dn=com" write
        by *                            read
I omited the part that is not relevant, all the includes are there the core, nis, intorgperson, samba, etc....

Now when I startup the slapd deamon it gives me the following error:
/etc/openldap/slapd.conf: line 100: bad DN "cn=mago,dn=merce,dn=com" in by DN clause
Now the line 100 is the second one of the # Users restrictions

For what I read, it might be a problem with ACL but then again.... Where can I find some detaild info about them?

Thanks a bunch in advance.
