Making a centralized Linux server???

How can I make a Primary Domain Controller out of a Mandrake Linux box and make Windows part of that domain???

really want to use Mandrake because its really easy to work with since I am a newbie. Right now I am running a Windows NT Server domain with Windows 2000 acting part of the domain. But I really want to dump Windows and use Linux as a server instead.

Please explain the steps.
