Here is what I did with MIT Krb5 & Win2k.

 - Setup my KDC with des-cbc-crc encryption.
 - Used the ksetup.exe util as per the Microsoft Kerberos Interoperability Steps document (exact name may differ) to:
	Set my kerberos realm
	Set my kdc
	Map all accounts (* & *@realm) to "Administrator"
- Got a tool called Wake, (http://www.rose-hulman.edu/TSC/software/wake/) which converts MSKRB5 tickets to MITKRB5 tickets (so I can use OpenAFS etc. an my windows workstations).

Why map all to administrator? There is little security implication here, as all users store there data on the AFS server and each user has thier own workstation.

If you must use AD, somewhere at padl.com there is a project in progress to make an OpenLDAP extension to talk as an ADC.

The Microsoft documents on UNIX interoperability are starting to get good as well, so instead of ignoring all MS links in your google searches, check them out. They are good.
