Hi John,

Did you try likewise-open? Its an open source product that allows you to 
join Active Directory domains with a single command. There is also a gui 
in the likewise-open-gui package. If I remember correctly it was 
introduced into main with 8.04 and it is the same product I belive is used 
in Fedora for joining Active Directory domains through the GUI.

Check out this link for more info on the wiki:
