Using a different User Database

I'm looking for a way to access user information not stored in
/etc/passwd, (i.e. an ldap database) On Linux I would install the
proper nss module and set that up, but it seems freebsd doesn't support
that yet. My ultimate goal would be to authenticate it against a win2k
active directory service (sorry, I have no control over it and can't do
it the other way around) I know about the pam modules, but I also need
the user info as well. Also, what should I do about the home dirs?
Make them all use some generic home dir or use something like a pam
module that creates one, I believe linux has such a pam module.
I remember reading somewhere in the samba docs that it is possible to
authenticate against a win2k ads so I think I should be able to do
this, but I'm still very new to freebsd.
I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
