The important bits in this document are the sections about pam_ldap
and nss_ldap.  You should probably install nss_ldap first and test to
make sure you can see users (using getent) before installing pam_ldap.
Then organise the authentication side of things using pam_ldap.  You
may also want to install nscd.

peace & happiness,
