I've never done this myself, as I authenticate my windows systems against a linux server:)....but try this:

http://www.wlug.org.nz/ActiveDirectoryAuthenticationNotes

There is a person here who has done it, who you could try emailing:

http://archives.neohapsis.com/archives/pam-list/2003-03/0052.html

This is a very detailed one that you should eb able to follow, but it requires Kerberus:

http://www.wlug.org.nz/ActiveDirectorySamba

And also here  has some pointers:

The key thing appears to be that you need samba v3, and the usage of Winbind. Not having done this myself, I regret that I can offer no more assistance:(

Sorry - forgot to expand a little - using the pam modules means that you should be able to authenticate anything using the methodology demonstrated (including squid). Follow the example for samba, and then when you are happy, move on to squid.

You may need to recompile squid with additional support - particularlt kerberus springs to mind. This is not trivial, but I hope my input has helped, and perhaps some of the other experts here can expand further.

I was able to spend some time with this today and after a lot of work, I have it authenticating correctly.  Thanks for the comments on this, but I found another article that helped me out a lot.  I am using Samaba 2.2.x with Squid 2.5.6 stable.
