pptpd currently authenticates via pppd using pap or chap and can handle being 
able to be passed domain login usernames (see also poptop documentation) but 
in order to authenticate via samba or your pdc directly, you will need to 
patch pppd.  There was a discussion on this within the last week on the list 
so check the archives.
