Thanks a lot, this is very useful information!

I also think that ldap (user management at least) should become
standard in RHL. It is possible to run all under ldap, but the ldap
management tools are missing (that's easy to fix) and the standard
RH user management tool should support ldap, too.

What is the status of RH tools with respect to that
(redhat-config-users, useradd)? libuser was already build against ldap
in RH9. Is there a chance to have more LDAP support in Cambridge?
