2003 Server Active Directory and Macs

Hello!

I'm not an active directory expert, but have setup domains successfully in the past. I have a client that has many clients on....

Mac OS 10.3.9, 10.4, 10.5. and 10.6
and then they have machines on Windows XP Pro and Win7.

The client wants authentication for users to login to their OS along with permissions to specific network volumes.

Is it me or is it absolutely nuts to have so many operating systems trying to do this? I expressed my thoughts that I feel they should have most or everyone on the same platform, but that doesn't appear it'll happen.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!

It should work - see the home directory subsection of this document: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=ServerAdmin/10.6/en/od493f86e4.html

Okay, but my main question is....will all of those other Mac operating systems simultaneously be able to work with no probs on the domain? I assume we'll have problems on 10.3.9

Should be fine. See the procedure for earlier versions here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TA21463
