That's basically what I did--wrote up my notes and put up the page that
I wished I'd had when first trying to wrap my head around it.  Like many
opensource things, it's not as hard as it seems, once you realize how
it's done.

LDAP's, or AD's?  Our Windows admin teaches mixed martial arts as a
sideline, so I don't argue too much with him.  :)

All kidding aside, to the OP, though it's not a cool thing--it's one of
the crummy things in many cases--finding docs to supplement the often
inadequate official documentation is pretty durn important.
