Question Linux connecting to Windows Server?

How would I connect my Mandrake 9.1 box to a Windows Server and Windows Domain? How could I log into the windows server domain?
Any instructions on this or utils?

Actually, I've been looking at using "smbpasswd" but I think I have to use some steps before this?

Yes I know there is no login prompt.
I guess I will wait for a solid release of Samba 3.0.
It seems to be able to get the job done. Active Directory and all.
