look at the SAMPLE_RECORDS.txt file that is part of the package to see an 
example grup record. you can also use the LDAPUserFolder to create a new 
group and add users to it, then examine the group and its structure.

i cannot help you on migrating your existing groups, though.

i know that the structure as provided by those PADL tools must be retained 
if you want to use LDAP authentication for your computers, like with the 
NSS-LDAP package. maybe those tools allow you to specify the creation of 
other groups?

if your number of groups is small you could even take the groups 
information created by the PADL tools and massage it by hand to get the 
desired result.
