James Lancaster will present this month's meeting covering LDAP (Lighweight
Directory Access Protocol), and how to setup an integrated LDAP/SMB/CUPS/NFS
environment, allowing both Linux and Windows clients for a server.

You can visit his current project at Currently
in Alpha, it works, but is not very error-proof (requiring the admin(s) to not
screw up), it also currently only works for installed systems.

An explaination of LDAP can be found here:

An excerpt follows:

A Directory is like a database..
you can put information in, and later retrieve it
..but it is specialized.
Some typical characteristics are...

* designed for reading more than writing
* offers a static view of the data
* simple updates without transactions

A Directory Service sports all of the above, plus..
a network protocol used to access the directory
..and perhaps also..

* a replication scheme
* a data distribution scheme
