i have a serversetup script listed below that will join your machine to the join, once that is done, try wbinfo -g, wbinfo -u to make sure it's all worked. if that fails there is a how-to on my website, also listed below.

if you want your uses to be able to login using the ADS password/username you'll have to edit your /etc/pam.d/login module.

if you using redhat or fedora try authconfig
