Hi guys,

Can you tell me what I am doing wrong. I am trying to create a md5 
password for the use of openldap. I have done this before on Suse and 
had no problem creating one there but I just get the message "slappasswd 
command not found..." in centos5.

The files appear to be there in /usr/sbin/ (although they look like 
links to the files needed)and I have installed the files for openldap, 
bind and the cyrus files which I thought would solve the issue but to no 
joy. What am I doing wrong in centos or what else do I need to download 
to be able to create an md5 password?

I have spent all morning searching but nothing seems to relate or help. 
It probably an easy solution but I am still on the steep learning curve 
learning linux.

Thanks in advance.

As a side note, Am I the only one that is going to miss the twice a 
month lugradio podcasts? I have seen no mention of their anouncement on 
the list as yet.
