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 works.

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