 Using OpenLDAP For Authentication

Mandrake Secure tells us how to use use OpenLDAP for authentication.

"User authentication for logins is generally a no brainer. You setup users on the local system and off you go... nothing to it. However, if you're on a LAN and you want to have a centralized "repository" of users, you will likely be looking at some method of distributing user information across the LAN. This has a few distinct advantages, the primary being all user authentication is centralized."
