Active Directory Integration -- Out of the Box

This is an 'easy' question.

I want a distro that, out of the box, acts like a Windows client. Finds my local NT/AD domain(s), and allows me to login _as a user of that domain_ or only as a local user.

When logged in as a user of a domain, I should have transparent access to network resources allowed to me.

Finally, I want to stress this needs to be absolutely "out of box" -- no compiles, installs, or file tweaks. It should Just Work.

Doesn't seem to be any distribution that will do this yet, and that really bites ass. We have the technology to do this. PAM, CIFS, Samba 3.0 and kerberos can make this happen.

I want you to prove me wrong. Find me a distrobution that does this.
