Maybe these links will help somebody....

Alot of general LDAP information -

And example for laying out a directory, lots of notes on schema, and
some other stuff someone looking for conceptual ideas might find handy
(this is merely internal documentation made public). -

This goes over all(?) the new ldap directives added in 3.0.x, was an
introduction to Samba 3.0.x for people running 2.2.x -

Not really relevant to LDAP but contains some pretty clever and
overlooked stuff (IMO anyway) -
