my friend...
the tutorial undoubtedly is there but its long...

the next step is to configure your smb.conf, krb5.conf and nsswitch.conf...
and do a domain join...
#>net ads join
check with ...
#>net rpc testjoin...

you are set ...
but as you can expect... you must have all valid configs first...

best luck...
post if you are in problem
