3. TTP, install the product 
4. TTP, use the LDAP control panel 

What does TTP stand for? 

BTW, I am still getting errors. I tried posting them on paste.plone.org , but I am getting an error now on that paste (try seeing http://paste.plone.org/27207 ). I am away from my plone box at this time, so I will try to paste again later. 

However, independent of my plone.paste.org woes, here's what I did. I took your suggestion, Graham, and added plone.app.ldap to the appropriate sections and I also added some lines in buildout as noted in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/forum/server/Plone . 

I ran
apt-get install libdb4.4-dev libsasl2-dev libssl-dev
and I added the following lines to my standard Plone 3.2.1 buildout

versions = versions
parts =

python-ldap = 2.3.5

recipe = zc.recipe.cmmi
url = ftp://ftp.openldap.org/pub/OpenLDAP/openldap-stable/openldap-stable-20071118.tgz

recipe = zc.recipe.egg:custom
egg = python-ldap
include-dirs  =
library-dirs  =

I already have python, zope and plone installed and running. I was expecting that adding the openldap and python-ldap lines in buildout would help getting those installed. However, buildout produces an error stating that it cannot find openldap on my system... it is obviously not installing it as I thought it would.
