All LDAP searche (for account objects, anyway) are done under the
'ldap suffix'.  If you have that set so that it can 'see' both
ou=People and ou=Computers, it really should 'just work'.  The 'ldap
user suffix' and 'ldap machine suffix' was meant to control where
users and machines get put, if they don't already exist.  Due to
current requirments, you pretty much always have to run an add user
script, so more important issetting this in the ldap tools.
