I'd add a note in the end to make the user aware, that by default 
ApacheDS will be run as user root (or add a new question 5th question 
about the user ApacheDS shall run under - which must be created if not 
yet existing).
Not every user is aware of the fact that in common services should not 
be run as user root because of security reason.

The installation work well, I could start the app and didn't get 
anything in the log directory. So I suppose that it wotked well.
