Error when setting up LDAP server on FC3??

I did choose 'Server' when installing FC3. I did the following steps after finishing :

1. rpm -ivh ftp://apt.nc.hcc.edu.tw/pub/apt/fedo...3.hcc.i386.rpm
2. apt-get update
3. apt-get -y dist-upgrade
4. apt-get install openldap-servers openldap-clients
## Upgrade to the latest version of FC3
5. rpm -ivh ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/dag/fedora/3...c3.rf.i386.rpm
## CPU is a tool for managing LDAP accounts
6. vi /etc/openldap/slapd.conf

database bdb
suffix "dc=my-domain,dc=com"
rootdn "cn=Manager,dc=my-domain,dc=com"

## change to : ##

database bdb
suffix "dc=my-own-domain,dc=com"
rootdn "cn=Manager,dc=my-own-domain,dc=com"
rootpw secret

7. wget http://www.padl.com/download/MigrationTools.tgz
8. tar -xzf MigrationTools.tgz
9. cd MigrationTools-46/
10. vi migrate_common.ph

# Default DNS domain
$DEFAULT_MAIL_DOMAIN = "padl.com";

# Default base
$DEFAULT_BASE = "dc=padl,dc=com";

## change to : ##

# Default DNS domain
$DEFAULT_MAIL_DOMAIN = "my-own-domain.com";

# Default base
$DEFAULT_BASE = "dc=my-own-domain,dc=com";

11. mkdir tmp
12. ./migrate_base.pl > tmp/base.ldif
13. ./migrate_hosts.pl /etc/hosts > tmp/hosts.ldif
14. ./migrate_group.pl /etc/group > tmp/group.ldif
15. ./migrate_passwd.pl /etc/passwd > tmp/passwd.ldif
16. cd tmp/
17. service ldap start
18. for i in *.ldif; do ldapadd -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=my-own-domain,dc=com" -w secret -f $i; done
19. vi /etc/openldap/ldap.conf

BASE dc=example,dc=com

## change to : ##

BASE dc=my-own-domain,dc=com
URI ldap://

20. vi /etc/ldap.conf


# The distinguished name of the search base.
base dc=example,dc=com

## change to : ##


# The distinguished name of the search base.
base dc=my-own-domain,dc=com

21. vi /etc/pam.d/system-auth

## add following lines to the end : ##

# For LDAP

auth sufficient /lib/security/$ISA/pam_ldap.so use_first_pass
account [default=bad success=ok user_unknown=ignore service_err=ignore system_err=ignore] /lib/security/$ISA/pam_ldap.so
password sufficient /lib/security/$ISA/pam_ldap.so use_authtok
session optional /lib/security/$ISA/pam_ldap.so

22. vi /etc/nsswitch.conf

passwd: files
shadow: files
group: files

#hosts: db files nisplus nis dns
hosts: files dns

## change to : ##

passwd: files ldap
shadow: files ldap
group: files ldap

#hosts: db files nisplus nis dns
hosts: files ldap dns

23. chkconfig ldap on
24. reboot
25. vi /etc/cpu.conf

# Can also use LDAP_URI = ldaps://localhost:389 for TLS support
BIND_DN = cn=Manager,dc=mydomain,dc=com
BIND_PASS = secret
USER_BASE = ou=People,dc=mydomain,dc=com
# replace account with inetOrgPerson if you want first or last name
GROUP_BASE = ou=Group,dc=mydomain,dc=com

## change to : ##

# Can also use LDAP_URI = ldaps://localhost:389 for TLS support
BIND_DN = cn=Manager,dc=my-own-domain,dc=com
BIND_PASS = secret
USER_BASE = ou=People,dc=my-own-domain,dc=com
# replace account with inetOrgPerson if you want first or last name
GROUP_BASE = ou=Group,dc=my-own-domain,dc=com

26. cpu useradd test
27. cpu usermod -p test


I could finially login with the new account 'test'. But when I try to modify '/etc/nsswitch.conf' with...

passwd: ldap files
shadow: ldap files
group: ldap files

After restarting 'notebook', the boot process always stop at 'INIT: version 2.85'

Enviornment :

Linux version 2.6.10-1.741_FC3
SELinux: Disable
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1400MHz stepping 05
RAM: 512 MB

Dump from phpldapadmin for account 'test' :

version: 1
