Adding a Mac to a windows domain

I am looking to add a MAC into our windows domain and am not sure exactly how to do it.  I don't thow if all this is povssible but I want the mac to be a ble to do the following thing.  
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.

Is all or and of this possible?  And how can it be done?

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.
