The task packages are separate. I've done a cleanup, and now The cd is
installable, also the Workstation. It looks like the CA is not strictly
necesarry for ldap, as I'm able to authenticate on a workstation with
the accounts in ldap. I've added to the config file what's needed for
the sarge installation. But I think we should consider making two
slapd.conf, one for sarge and one for woody. We could also use cfengine
to edit slapd prepared for sarge, but I'm not sure.

Another thing we have to look at is exim config. it has changed a bit
(exim3 -> exim4) 

What's missing for now is: 
 the ltsp-packages

The one from our Woody-archive seems to fit right in, so I'll add them
for now.
