actually i'm reading this book , ' mastering openldap' from packt 
publishing, on it,
the book uses ubuntu as distro in their examples and i just assumed the 
working of openldap between distro's wouldn't be any different (except 
for directory paths). however i removed the moduleload line , ran 
'slaptest -v -u -f /etc/openldap/slapd.conf' (the 'database hdb' bit was 
already there) and now it's fine.
