Have you had any luck with this? I'm in the same boat. I just started experimenting with 3.0 with rh8 and 9 and get the same perl dependency error.

I re-ran setup and installed every perl option that I can see, but still the same result. rpm -qa |grep perl displays perl to be there along with other perl programs.

Hope to hear from you or anyone else.

SAMBA comes with Red Hat, you don't need to install it yourself.

For future reference, you can resolve perl dependancy errors by doing this:

perl -MCPAN -e 'shell'
(you get a command prompt)
install Whatever::Module::You::Need

So in this case you want Net::LDAP::LDIF. But don't do this, as you already have Samba on the CDs
