good LDAP resources

I need to set-up some sort of password server for a small network so that i don't have to set-up accounts on every machine.

It looks like LDAP is the best way to do that.

Is it ?

I've been looking at the LDAP how-to's and even tried to turn things on using one of them, but I can't quite get things working.

Can someone point me to a good resource as to how to make it work ?
