There's the umich ldap server and client that support ldap v2 freely available.
Note: I haven't tried those rpms, I just found them...

"the ldap book" is "LDAP: Programming Directory-Enabled Applications with
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol", Tim Howes, Mark Smith, Macmillan,
ISBN 1-57870-000-0

In particular, people probably want to access standard "inetorgperson"
directories; some ISPs, for example, create LDAP directories of their
subscribers.  netscape is able to access these directories.  Netscape
is a big fish in the LDAP world; they hired the folks who created LDAP
away from umich and netscape now has their own enhanced LDAP server
and client library.

That useful?
