The book will still be server independent, I do not explain how to 
configure ApacheDS. Of course I mention ApacheDS (or should I say 
"recommend"?), but there is no configuration in the printed text (only 
in the download files for the book).

But let me say that I consider the new server.xml much easier to 
configure. The structure is clearer, and things are easy which where 
hard in the past. Well done, Enrique.

For instance NTP. I have just enabled it on port 10123 (straight forward 
in server.xml), wrote three lines of Java code which uses the 
commons-net client, and now I know what time it is! I am looking forward 
to enable the rest.

By the way: Does anybody know a graphical Windows NTP client (aka 
clock), which allows me to specify the port? It would make a nice screen 
shot for the documentation. I do not want to force Windows users to use 
port 123 for first NTP steps -- XP already uses it, and they will have 
to disable a service ...

Thanks in advance,
