Antoine, Jason and the rest of the FreeBSD crew!
I am also very interested in this topic, our youth/tech center is
working to switch all of our servers to FreeBSD as well. Right now we
have a WIN2K active dir set-up to authenticate internal and external
users and WIN2K web/ftp servers :( .

Any pointers, walk-throughs, warnings or the like would be greatly
appreciated. If you want to see more about our specific situation (which
we have titled "Set Us Free(BSD)", check out:
