Not certain my what you mean by integration in this context.

Again, not certain what level of integration you are talking about.

No. (Of course WinXP/2000 doesn't use LDAP directely either - despite
all their directory oriented market blather, under the covers they are
still using M$-RPC calls all the time).
Samba 3.x.x w/LDAP does make a very nice PDC however.
If your going to use all M$ software otherwise, just use AD; why are you
bothering even to look at anything else?
