It depends upon your current set up.  Is the current schema accessible by the users?  Can they query the LDAP and see at least the hashes of their passwords?  Basically, your questions and answers should be hidden just like the password hashes.

There is no complicated schema.  Just add
secret question:
secret answer:

Just like the password field.

This might be a little help

First you have to see which object class is the password stored in or a member of.  Use your object browser to see that.

In that object class, you need to add two more fields, secretQuestion and secretAnswer.  Since this object class would also be a part of person's LDIF, you will have to make minimal changes.  You will only need to add these attributes.
