I am brand new to rhel 3.0 and many of the distros I have used lately have a tool to find the package files for that distro.  

Where do I find the openldap rpms for rhel 3.0 ?

I am also new to openldap.

   RHEL 3.0, the openldap is in CDs. By default, the openldap should be installed.
Please open a terminal window and type
# rpm -qa | grep openldap
to check it is installed or not.

  If you want the openldap-server, then login as root (Gnome) and click
"start" --> System Setting --> Add/Remove Applications
# redhat-config-packages   (in terminal window)

   Then there will be a window pop up like the "add/remove program" in M$ Windows.
Openldap-server is in "Network Servers" (click the details and check it).
Click ok then it will prompt you to put in the CD.

The Rpms come with your cds By the manufacuter like said above from wesly_chen

But you can download the tarballs and install them  Here is the link to then stable ones

tar -xzvf package.tar.gz
cd into extracted Directory
make install;
Good luck

Another easy way to do would to install it from the cd and if you are registered with RH use up2date to update it that way you don't have to deal with
the tarballs!

An even easier way is to use the Red Hat subscription that you are paying for.  As root, type:

up2date -i openldap

and the package (and any dependencies) will be installed from the red hat network.  So you will have the latest and greatest.  Even if you install from CD you're going to need to update it anyways.
