Heh--well, since I've written my own page on it, it's gotten better. RH
didn't help by making some undocumented changes, but once again, the
CentOS folks got it documented.  

I suspect LDAP documentation is one reason Active Directory became so
popular.  (Feed the troll, I'm hungry.)   :)

(Although the part about LDAP documentation is not trolling, I think
it's pretty much an accepted thing.  The Active Directory part was, of
course, a troll.)
