I don't know about any howtos off-hand, but the #ldap channel on was a good help to me.  I used the inetOrgPerson schema
which is the same schema for M$ Outlook, Pine, and several other mail
clients.  Also, for Mozilla to work, I needed to add the following line:

allow bind_v2

Other then that, I was able to add users just fine.

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
