    I would recommend going with something like admitmac or likewise.

    The active directory support built into os x is horrible. Doesn't support mount points, login scripts etc.

    go to System Preferences -> User Accounts anc click Login Options. You should see a button named "Join..." on the right side of the window.

    go to your HD, then to Library -> Coreservices -> DirectoryUtility is in there.

    open it up and joining a domain is fairly simple.

    hope this helps.
