Current versions of Netware's NDS talk LDAP - NDS is the underlying
Directory Service, with LDAP just being the protocol for accessing
Replication is the job of the DS, not its access protocol(s).
Its not NDS vs LDAP - its <any DS> + <ubiquitous access protocol>
All LDAP-speaking compute-nodes (an that *will* be everybody
very soon) will care about is that <NDS,X.500,MS_whatever> know
how to present their DS info in LDAP-speak.
