That RFC2307 is already enabled per default, is already mentioned in the
first section. The rest of the HowTo are general information, byside the
ADUC stuff at the end and not just Windows related.

And I even use the ypServ30 schema if I'm administrating on Linux,
because I increment there the next UID/GID, like ADUC does. So it's easy
to track the last used IDs and I stay ADUC compatible if other
administrators or I use ADUC.

Feel free to register an account and add it. As more people contributing
to the Wiki, as faster we are getting a great documentation ;-)
