sorry I wasn't clear about what I'm trying to do. I spent most of Sunday getting
mangled in the surf of Redcar beach and the brain cell has not yet relocated all
it's synapses.

 It's an **experimantal** DIT so real-world concerns about root level searches
are not an issue at the moment. I'm also using LDAP and ldapsearch for my queries. 


What I'm trying to do in this instance is return a list of all **countries** in
the DIT, no sub-tree searching involved. I've set searchlevel=0 in qtailor and I've
tried variations on the query
 
ldapsearch -h LDAPserver-host -s one -b c=/ c=* c   

All to no avail :-(     (mainly producing "Invalid DN syntax")

Dish is quite happy with	"search @ -filter c=*"   but I can't figure out
the LDAP equivilant.
