well what are you looking at doing? most distro's have winbind, kerberos and ldap (usally openldap).
From that list of programs i'm guessing your going to be looking into a Samba PDC?
if so there is a fair amount of information on my website listed below about OpenLDAP clients, OpenLDAP servers, Winbind authenicating against ADS, Setting up a Samba/OpenLDAP/LAM PDC and a link to my scripts website with an easy step by step bash script for setting up servers.
I don't have enough confidence in the enterprise stability and reliability of samba to use it as a domain controller. It wouldn't stand a hope in hell of competing against windows 2000/2003 in a level playing field, so if Microsoft were to ever go open source (ha ha) then samba would be completely obsolete.
However, as a free (as in beer) solution then this is the only thing to try to my knowledge so it might be worth playing with. I'll have a look at your howtos, thanks!
