Actually I am not migrating from another LADP.  This is a new install.  I am
migrating from /etc/passwd /etc/master.passwd.  I generated the LDIF file
using the PADL tools for migration because I could not find any clear info on
what the schema for passwd needed to be.  Once I can get my entry loaded with
the bogus password field.  I will put together my own little bit of AWK to
generate a proper entry from /etc/master.passwd as I presume the encrypted 
password really needs to be in the LDAP DB.

I will take a look at the config file (basic stock from the isntall with as
I recall the names changed to match my site) and see what that brings based
upon your advice above.
