SFU is 'only' needed if you want to authenticate UNIX machines to
an AD...

AD4UNIX modifies the AD schema and database, giving the option to
use the 'posixAccount' objectclass with your users, which is nessesary
for UNIX authentication...

Unfortunatly, as said, AD4UNIX isn't availible any more (I think I have
a copy somewhere). The good thing is that you don't need it with newer
AD's/SFU, it comes 'built in'.
