[Deploying Sakai] LDAP Group Mapping

Hi all,

So, I have LDAP login working well on a instance of Sakai but I'm hung up
the type part of a user account which I believe is related to the
group membership mapping.

Everything is mapping correctly (First name, Last name, Email, etc) except
Type.  What I would like is to specify with the groupmembership attribute
with that you see on the screenshot (Faculty, WHS students, etc).  So that
when an LDAP user logs in and goes to account it would look like this:

User ID: jdoe
First Name: John
Last Name: Doe
Email: jdoe at windsorschools.net
Type: Faculty (or WHS Students, or SSS Students, whatever group they are a
part of)

I talked to a few Sakai developers and it looks like I need a memberOf
overlay according to
that article refers to a directory at /var/lib/ldap2.4 and it doesn't exist
within OS X server so that right away raises some red flags.  Oh yeah,
running OS X Server 10.6.4.  I also can't find the memberof module either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
