Active Directory is a feature of Windows 2000 and Windows XP. It is a centralized service for managing otherwise distributed directory services. I recently read somewhere that Mandrake Linux 9.1 now has something similar to Active Directory. My experience with networking under Windows 2000 and XP is somewhat limited so I will not attempt to define what it is beyond that.

There is a version of Samba that is supposed to be able to emulate an active directory, you may want to check out
