Try mod_auth_kerb - authenticate your users using AD as your Kerberos
KDC.  You can even get pass-through authentication going, meaning that
once your users have logged onto their Windows boxes their credenticals
will authenticate them with Apache too.  Fiddly but very nice when it

I can send you config examples and demo scripts if you need them.
