It's very much possible. It DO depend a little on what you want it for.
If you're going to use Exchange, then better go with AD. From what I've
heard it IS possible to configure OpenLDAP for this, but I never actually
heard any REAL success stories (only 'it should be possible provided you ...').

Well, so far I don't need Exchange, there are other alternatives for that for Linux I think.

It deals with everything but Samba (never had a use for it :).

Hmmm, I'm looking for something more like "OpenLDAP+Kerberos+Samba+CyrusSASL a Active Directory HOWTO" :)

I don't feel like inventing all that alone; just implementing all that bits and pieces together seem to be a really painful and lengthy process...
