[Dovecot] help needed - dovecot-ldap authentication

I am trying to set a up mail server on a ubuntu edgy machine. I followed the
howto at http://wanderingbarque.com/howtos/mailserver/mailserver.html .
I am able to configure everything except dovecot-ldap authentication :(.
After struggling with it for a week I decided to seek help.

The current version of dovecot is v1.0 RC21 and the version used for the
howto is  v0.99.10.9. I installed & tried to configure both versions but
none of them was able to authenticate a user from ldap. I noted  some
differences in syntax of the dovecot.conf files of  both the versions. It
seems that the ldap documentation at dovecot site is from the old version of
dovecot ( I might be wrong on this!). So if anyone can tell me how to
configure the current version of dovecot with openldap?

Please help me!

I am eagerly waiting for your response.
