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.
