There's two books you should try to get copies of:

Rose, Marshall T. "The Little Black Book: Mail Bonding with OSI
Directory Services", 1992, Prentice Hall, New Jersey, ISBN 0-13-683210-5

Chadwick, David "Understanding X.500 The Directory", 1994, Chapman
& Hall, London, ISBN 0-412-43020-7

My links on X.500 (from my Hotlist):

Also on LDAP:

       Uh oh, no Boom.          |    and I speak for no one else.
