1. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

   Unpack the tarball somewhere in your web server tree.
  
   Copy config-default.php to config.php, and edit config.php. There are plenty 
   of parameters, but for a quick run you'll only need to change a few.

      host : an array of possible LDAP servers. will be presented in the login page

      binddn : array of predefined account's DN. 
   
      directoryBrand : the name of your LDAP server - for now: openldap,iplanet,netscape 
   
      tmpdir : a temporary directory where LDAPnav stores cached informations  
   	   LDAP.Navigator uses a cache that creates plenty of file in tmpdir. 
	      You *should* setup a cron or such to remove these files; say once everyday.
     
      appName : the default page title
   
      adminName : name of the LDAP navigator administrator (end users assistance).
      
      adminEmail : email address of this admin.

	Fields description:
