OK, I'm just really new at Centos-DS, but it looks to me like it will
simplify this task for you. I just finally got it set up, and
authentication working for Linux SSH login, as well as Apache. This
is all really easy stuff, now that I know how to do it. Even if it
did take me a week or more to figure out how to get here :-)
But in browsing around inn the Centos-DS admin tool, it seems to have
a whole whack of NT Domain stuff built in. And I see HOWTOs out
there for Samba.
You should join the 389-ds mailing list.
I have not yet jumped into any of the NT stuff, but I'll be going there soon.
