Linux is able to certify the users querying windows AD. With any distro you got a Config Manager. In the Security section you'll find the Authentication Type you want to use (Win Domain in this case). Usually that'all.

I've not used it, so I'm not able to tell you how this works (fine or not), but is just a schema extension and the project seems abandoned, so I do not advice you to use it. The best way ever is to use the methods integrated in the OS (so also well maintained) in a production environment.

Cheers

On the Microsoft side (I forgot because I prefer Linux ;) ) you can use MIIS: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/interopmigration/linux.mspx
