[olug] ldap help - Setting up an ldap server

I'm trying to setup an ldap server, following this article here:

I get to the part where we load the initial directory.ldif file with:
ldapadd -D 'dc=example, dc=com' -f directory.ldif -W

And I get prompted for a password.  In their example they type 'secret', 
and it happily accepts it.  I've tried that, and a ton of other things 
that came up in google (using ldappasswd and trying to figure out 
slappasswd) but I no matter what I do I always get :
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Internal (implementation specific) error (80)
        additional info: SASL(-13): user not found: no secret in database

I've uncommented the "rootpw    secret" line in slapd.conf, but that 
doesn't help either. I'm doing this on CentOS, with the standard 
openldap-servers rpm.  Any pointers appreciated.
