A quick Search of the forum here or of Google would answer this one..
Likewise Open is a free, open source application that joins Linux, Unix, and Mac machines to Microsoft Active Directory and securely authenticates users with their domain credentials.

Better integration would require Samba 4 which is in the works.. (you can use it now if you like)
