You can use authconfig-tui.
authconfig-tui 1authconfig-tui 2On the second screen:
- enter the NetBIOS domain name for Domain (all caps)
- enter a comma-separated list of the FQDNs of your DCs for Domain Controllers
- enter the full domain name for ADS Realm (all caps)
Then select Join Domain and enter credentials.

It should take you back to the same screen.  After the join select OK.
Check your AD to see if the account has been created.  Let me know if not.
