Yeri, you have to create the parent object first:
(add this to the top of your LDIF file:)

dn: dc=mylan,dc=net
objectclass: dcobject
dc: example

then the rest as you have it...
dn: ou=Computers,dc=mylan,dc=net
ou: Computers
objectClass: top
objectClass: organizationalUnit
objectClass: domainRelatedObject
associatedDomain: mylan.net
