LDAP acl n00b question

So I am setting up an LDAP for some user authentication and am working 
on some access control lists. Right now, I have just the rootdn that was 
set up when I installed slapd on my Debian Lenny box and that is 
currently the only account that can write to most of the directory. I 
want to set things up so that a small group of specified users have 
essentially full access to the directory. I not quite sure how to do 
this. I would like to have it so that I can add an attribute to a users 
object that would then enable access. But I am also open to other 
alternatives. Hopefully some ldap savvy guys on the list can help me out 
with some examples. Thanks.
