1: I want to be able to log in using an active directory account
2: I want to be able to access file and printer shares,
3: I want to if possible have the users local directlry setup the the local diestory in their AD account.

on the mac start  Directory Utility (it's under Utility) and bilnd your domain. staright forward just like how you join a pc to the domain. make sure the time on the mac matches with your DC.  you can share printers and files fine.


3rd one I haven't tried it but I'm sure you can mount their home directories.
