In LDAP terms DN means Distinguished Name. My guess is the top field is refering to the account name you want to use to authenticate the search, followed by the account password. The Base DN would then be the LDAP search string to the root AD folder where your accounts are stored. In other words the domain name. You may or may not have to enter the info in the form of an LDAP string.

Here are some examples that should help you.
