Sorry I didn't get back with you sooner but I have been out of town. I
really appreciate the suggestion but I tried that a couple of times in the
process of starting over.
I have tried setting ldap up several times in the past with about as much
success. Guess I'll put it down for a while.
Thanks to everyone for all the help!!!!!
