    On Mac OS 10.5 you can connect to AD with Directory Utility (under applications, utilities).

    If you're only looking to do file sharing, and don't need to bind to the domain, you can connect to windows based fileservers using the GO menu on the mac (in Finder) and then "Connect to Server". Enter the share in the format: smb://ip.address.of.server/sharename
