While you can run OpenLDAP servers on FreeBSD 4.8 quite happily, you
won't be able to have the FreeBSD 4.8 system be a full blown client of
the LDAP server itself.  For that, you will need to upgrade to 5.1
where you can install the net/nss_ldap as well as the
security/pam_ldap port.

It's generally best to install using ports as that gets you any
FreeBSD specific tweaks that have to be made, rather than following
the generic Unix install instructions from the software writers.

However, once the software is installed, you still need to follow the
OpenLDAP installation guide for configuring the server.  If you're
working from http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin21/quickstart.html, then
the ports installation effectively gives you steps 1 -- 7, and you can
jump to step 8 directly.

You would be well advised to read through section 5 of the admin
guide: http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin21/slapdconfig.html so that
you can gain a deeper understanding of what the instructions in
section 8 of the quick start guide actually do.

What's the BASE setting in /usr/local/etc/openldap/ldap.conf ? That
will set the default dn where clients search for data.  As it is, your
slapd.conf says that it serves the dn appropriate for 'domain.net' 

The other question is what security settings have you entered into
slapd.conf ?  The default security setting is 'Allow read by all' and
only the rootdn can write anywhere.
