    our network. Is it possible to do this.

    I'll answer myself part of the way: You use the Directory Access utility
    (/Applications/Utilities), click on Active Directory, then Configure.
    After that, you need to know more about AD than I do. And I also know
    from others that AD support prior to Mac OS X, v. 10.3.2 (I think) was
    very flaky in some configs.

    In addition, it has been my experience that you must disable certain
    security settings on Windows Server 2003 (allow cleartext passwords to
    third-party clients, don't require SMB signing, etc.) in order for Mac
    OS X to mount shares from Windows Server 2003-based servers.
