Samba 3.x can operate as a directory controller for a network of
windows machines.  Active Directory itself is little more than LDAP
and Kerberos with a fancy-schmancy front-end and a few niggling
changes to make it hard to integrate into a Unix based LDAP+Kerberos
setup, but Samba provides the glue that makes that possible.
