My original question:

The answers:
My choice of hardware is rather appropriate, as the consensus
says. For the server itself, the one from the University of
Michigan had very strong votes in its favor. It can be found in:

However, we plan to use an LDAP server that supported SSL, so
I guess that using Netscape Directory Server v3.1 will suite me
(which also had very strong votes).

Again, thank you very much for your kindness,
