What exactly do you want to achieve with LDAP ?  Credential repository,
shared address book, something else ? 

This will be not very helpful to you, but unless you have already access to
an LDAP server (OpenLDAP, ActiveDirectory, etc) I would suggest you set
up one and get familiar with LDAP lingo before you proceed further. LDAP
is not rocket science, but it does require a fair bit of understanding
to work properly.

I'm sorry, I can't help you with the upgrade (never had to go thru it
