integrate active directory with linux dns

hi. i would like to know if it is possible to integrate active directory after configuring dns n linux. also, when a terminal gets hanged, how do i find its process id. and lastly, when we view the permissions given to different files and folders with the help of ls command, there is "total" and a number written next to it...what does "total" imply? thank you.

In reverse:

Total 'implies' the size on disk that these files in this directory are taking up. So, a ls -lh /tmp returns something that looks like:
ls -lh /tmp
total 548K
This should be the 'sum total' of all the files in that directory and what space they take up.

You find process ID's with 'ps' or 'top' generally speaking; there are other ways but those are likely the answers you are looking for.

I actually have no idea if you can integrate active directory after DNS is configured, but my quick (completely unfounded) guess would be that you can with quite a bit of work. You probably will want to consult a book on Active Directory and Linux or an online resource to see if it mentions it.

Active directory quick answer: a linux machine can participate in an AD environment in the same way as an NT4 machine. More information is available at the Samba web site.
