Suse Ent w/ Windows 2003 Active Domain
I have a intranet that consists of seven Windows 2003 servers with one of them acting as the Active Directory Domain Controller. I've decided to try today's linux on one of the servers to see if I can eventually eliminate my dependency on Windows.
The distro is SuSE Linux Enterprise 9 and the box will mainly be used as a file-server with two 8xRaid-5 setups.
I need to know how to set up Samba to integrate with the existing 2003 Active Directory so that all the user account access rights that have already been set can be used on this Suse box.
I've done a little research on integrating with the windows server AD, but all the info I've run across didn't apply to Suse, or just totally lost me with instructions that assume you (me) already know more about linux that I do (i.e. leaving steps out an experience guru would just know). I'm a hardware professional, not a software engineer, so this is an excruciating painful experience that I hope will be worth it in the end.
Can anyone 'dumb it down' or point me to a place that pertains to Suse Ent and goes step by explicate step? What files need to be modified and how? Do I need to post the contents of any of them here? Please help.
