And... as I previously noted in various forums... switching from Sun to 389 project ( should be fairly simple. If you have a redhat derivative system then an RPM install works just fine and then an export from Sun directory and import into 389 should work if you aren't doing anything too funky with ACIs. Use the Console to set other options and features.

This is probably the easiest thing to do.
