it is possible, but you'll have to install some packages manualy by
compiling them for your own.
these packages are kerberos and samba, as the versions in most distros
are to old to work correct as an ads-member in win2k3-ADS.
AFAIK you'll have to install MIT-kerberos 1.33 and, at the moment, samba
from svnall other versions do not work.
