You can use pam_ldap to authenticate against AD. In combination with a recent version of nss_ldap you can also keep user information like uid, uidNumber, etc in AD.

BTW using Kerberos (pam_krb5) with nss_ldap should also be possible. If you intend to use pam_ldap with AD you should think about using LDAP over SSL. This will require a Certification Autority on your W2k server.
