There are 2 alternatives to authenticate against Active Directory:

Using the kerberos client (requires Active Directory)
Using Winbind & samba client
In my opinion, option 1 is the cleanest. I definitely found it more simple to setup. Option 2 offers some additional features, notably the use of th net command through which you can enumerate domain users and more. However on most workstations this will not be required. Therefore, if you have active directory i recommend option 1.
