JNDI, LDAP, & Active Directory

I borrowed a nice piece of code for JNDI hits against LDAP from this website:
OpenLDAP Jndi Tutorial

I am trying to use it to retrieve info from our Active Directory Server.
I altered it to point to my domain, and I want to retrieve a person's full name(CN), e-mail address and maybe their location.
I've looked at lots of examples, I've tried lots of things, but I'm really missing something. I'm new to Java, new to JNDI, new to LDAP, new to AD and new to Tomcat. Any help would be so appreciated.
To show you the code, and the error message, I've changed the actual names I used for connection.
What am I not coding right? I get an error message like this:
javax.naming.NameNotFoundException[LDAP error code 32 - 0000208D: nameErr DSID:03101c9 problem 2001 (no Object), data 0,best match of DC=mycomp, DC=isd, remaining name dc=mycomp, dc=isd

I agree. Here's the link:
