I have OpenLDAP working at CSE.  I used the padl tools and migrated NIS
to ldap.  I then made my own perl scripts to keep it up to date with
NIS.  I also have similar scripts for shadow passwords instead of NIS. 
I can use outlook, netscape, evolution to lookup addresses.  I wrote
some php classes to enable quick ldap auth for web pages.  I also have
sendmail doing lookups against it so I can enable CSE alumni email
addresses without needing a shell account.  I chose ldap for that
purpose so they can login to a web page and change the forwarding
address as they need.

I have docs I can clean up if that interests anyone.
