OpenLDAP/PAM/NSS does all this very nicely.

It is probably easiest to just use AD as the DSA.  Grab the
MKSADExtPlugin and you should be able to pam_ldap and nss_ldap against

I'm not aware of a way to replication AD -> OpenLDAP as they do
replication via some convoluted connection on port 25.  But there are
other people on the list that know alot more about AD than me.
