It's not really available in RHEL5.2 (or 5.3-latest either).. The v1.6
MIT-Kerberos is there, but the ldap plugin isn't provided, so one will
have to rebuild the packages to get it (and probably every time Red Hat
decides to upgrade the krb5 packages).

But, Klaus's BluePrint looks great! I hope to use it to set up the same 
against Red Hat's own directory server instead of ITDS.
