This depends on which version of OSX you're running, please confirm this.

version 10.7.3
You should be able to bind to AD using the following setting.

System Preferences --> Users and Groups --> Login Options --> Network Account Server - Join

I've not yet tried this on Lion but there seem to be lots of reports of AD/Lion issues online.

you can do what demented_goose mentioned or you can add it via console

sudo dsconfigad -domain <your domain> -u <network admin>

Open in new window

thank you Run5k this was great!
Glad to help!
