Since I've never used LDAP before, can you point me to a good source for the schema and how to access data within it?  I understand things like MySQL easy enough. But since I need to reconcile data between MySQL and Samba's LDAP, I need to be sure I understand how Samba's LDAP is laid out and how you'd access it externally.
