Adding a MAC to my AD Environment

We are starting to get more and more mac's in our office.  Normally I have just had the users log into their machine then I created a script that maps to the appropriate folders on our file server.  Since I am getting more and more, I was wondering if anyone had some GOOD documentation on how to actually add the macs to AD for authentication.  Also is there a way to map the appropriate drives via GP on the mac's too.  I do that for all my PC's but wasn't sure on how to accomplish it with the macs if I even can.

there is no decent mac support for AD out of the box, you'll have to use some third party.
