1. login as a local admin to the Mac
2. navigate to Macintosh HD>system>library>core services
3. Open directory utility
4. Open active directory and put in your domain information and a user with binding rights.
5. Save and restart.
That's all it takes.

In addition to the above you also have the option to set how your home directory is mapped (can use AFP or SMB to the value stored in your home directory tab in AD account). In addition you can set which AD groups are allowed to admin the machine (domain admins, enterprise admins for example)
