I need some help

I am currently setting up my FC5 box with ldap + samba + postfix +
dovecot support as prescribed in howto

My problem is in starting the dovecot server.
I get the following error
Starting Dovecot Imap: Error: Error in configuration
file /etc/dovecot.conf line 16: Unknown setting: passdb

My dovcot.conf file:

protocols = imap pop3
login_dir = /var/run/dovecot/login
login_chroot = yes
disable_plaintext_auth = no
login_user = dovecot
first_valid_uid = 101
last_valid_uid = 101
first_valid_gid = 101
last_valid_gid = 101
valid_chroot_dirs =/home/vmail/domains
default_mail_env = maildir:/home/vmail/domains/%d/%n
auth = default
auth_mechanisms = plain
auth_userdb = ldap /etc/dovecot-ldap.conf
auth_pass = ldap /etc/dovecot-ldap.conf
auth_executable = /usr/libexec/dovecot/dovecot-auth
auth_user = dovecot-auth

It is complaining about the auth_userdb parameter as var as I can see.

Can anyone help please.
