Conflicting FDS instance name

Hi Andrew,

Attached are some new patches:

1. The first one takes netbios name, convert it into lower case,
   and then use it for the instance name. This patch doesn't
   include the --ldap-instance parameter. If you think it's
   important just let me know, I'll send another patch.

2. The second one moves some OpenLDAP specific variables into
   the OpenLDAPBackend class.
