Try that first:
ldapsearch -x

If this dosen't work make sure sldapd is running.

The ldaphost should be '-h ldap' but it is not required;
If you wish to authenticate you need '-xZ' options.
So try:
ldapsearch -xZWD 'cn=admin,ou=People,dc=skole,dc=skolelinux,dc=no'
Use the root password for binding as this user.
Set debug and other options to whatever you wish.

Yes, for each '-D binddn' it's the user's password and yes it may be changed.

I'd take the opportunity to recommend ldapvi, for how to connect using ldapvi
