edubuntu and active directory

I'm in need of a bit of help. I have set up a server with a basically
default install of edubuntu and my clients will boot just fine. The
problem is linking the login process to active directory.

I am not the network guy for the district and know nothing about AD so
this side of things is out of my hands. This did work last year with
Suse so I know it can work.

Are there any known issues with setting up AD or any "tricks" that if
we knew them it would help? From what I can tell it is running but
just won't connect. Each time we try it says something about getting
an unexpected reply.

I know that's kind of vague but any info you can supply would be
greatly appreciated. Our wonderful edubuntu lab is just sitting there
until this problem is solved.


Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
