Of course, but yo can integrate any Linux system already with kerbose and
the only requirement to integrate a fedora system in to a AD is to achieve
the full features of the AD such as personal data, etc.. To achieve this you
cannot use Likewise open you need to have the full product. isnt it?

Likewise Open works completely on the client side and does NOT require the
changes you mentioned. Well, you did NOT say "Open" after Likewise so I
guess you were talking about the full blow product that is both client side
and server side software.
Give the goal of Likewise, as well as the one or two competing commercial
products in the same space... altering the AD server side so it can manage
Linux and Mac OS X clients seems unavoidable. And to the best of my
knowledge everyone does it that way. I guess you can get around it by
decided not to manage Linux and Mac OS X clients at all.
Please note that I do not advocate the use or non-use of Likewise or any
other commercial solution as I've not tried any of them... but I've read
about them. Like everyone on this list, I do prefer open solutions when
they are available.
