If you use samba4 you can replace microsoft AD DC controller with samba.
I've done this on a FreeBSD machine for a small company (around 5
people) and it works quite well. I currently have some problems getting
roaming profiles to work (and no time for it ;-)).

After setup you need a windows machine for domain administration on
which you install windows 2003 admin pack (not sure if this is the
correct name). you can then administer your domain as you're used to...

from what I've read multi master replication with openldap should be
possible. never tried. but from my (current limited) knowledge you can
even setup more than one DC for your active directory...

by time I will play a little more with this features and setup some blog
to document all that stuff..
