OpenLDAP is a pretty well documented project, they have complete docs
for installing and configuring an OpenLDAP server.

Using google I found these links to get you started:
www.openldap.org/doc/admin22/install.html
www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=04/03/01/1318258

Then I looked for a ldap basics guide:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r2/ic2924/index.htm?info/rzahy/rzahyovrco.htm
(Even tho there is some iSeries references in the IBM article, it will
cover the basics of LDAP, enough to get you started)

Then look at the Rails Wiki
http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/HowtoAuthenticateViaLdap

I hope I have been helpful. I don't believe you'll find much help form
others tho, just get the documentation and read it all. We all had to
read the docs. If you get stuck with a problem, then ask. :slight_smile:
