Yeah but I have never used instructions from the OpenLDAP website.  I  
wrote my own very basic scripts.  You would only want to create your  
own CA if you needed several certificates and you had several people  
who needed to access them.  For your own use, self-signed  
certificates are fine.  There is a GUI for doing this buried in the  
latest MacOS X somewhere so maybe an OSS one will turn up sooner or
