Hello,
I need to integrate some Linux servers into a Windows 2003 Active Directory domain.
Any good links on this or ideas?
I do not know linux, but I know windows pretty well.
Is the learning curve steep?

You can add these Linux servers to the network using Samba.  You did not really say what the Linux role will be so if this does not tell you what you need then please post some details on what you want the Linux systems to do. (ie file server, print server).

If you have never used Linux then there will be some learning curve but if you post some details the experts here can guide you. One of the first things you should do as well is figure out the Linux distro you are using. There will be important details on installing Samba that will differ based on the Linux you have.

Ubuntu seems very user-friendly and there is a server version available (meaning only that it has less of the eye-pleasing stuff, I guess, as Linux doesn't have the differentiation between servers and workstations that windows has). www.ubuntu.com

Also, depending on your needs for user rights administration, you could look at freenas (www.freenas.org) for a simple file server (a NAS, in effect).
