Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Likewise is used to join the Linux machines to AD domain. But because it authenticates with AD, I guess it should be possible. Just like a windows machine outside the domain would be asked to provide domain credentials for accessing the resources.
If you want to use domain resources, say a shared folder, on a system that is not the part of the domain, you will be asked to provide domain credentials to access it in a pop up windows.
So, I am guessing likewise could be used in a similar way to pass domain credentials for accessing resources or authenticating domain users. And I am guessing this because to join Linux machine to a windows domain, you need to pass domain credentials as well.
If you want to use Likewise, then just install it and then add your server to your company domain. It should automatically be configured to authenticate in your domain.
If you want to do it manually, then the best way is to configure kerberos and samba.
You should be able to use ntlm authentication.
