It would help more if you told us what you are trying to accomplish. For 
instance, if you want to authenticate unix clients to Active Directory, or 
authenticate clients of unix services to Active Directory, a better 
solution may be to use samba-3.0.x and winbind.

Of course, discussion of samba and winbind would not be appropriate for 
this list.
