I believe Nalin has augmented some of this in the fc3 tree, not 100%

Like the article noted, most of this should work already. It really
boils down to configuring Samba (and possibly Kerberos) correctly,
joining the domain, and setting your nsswitch.conf and PAM
configuration files to use winbind.
I think the problems the eWeek folks ran into were caused by authconfig
attempting to make the Samba and Kerberos configuration mirror each
other in a way which turned out to just be confusing to people who
weren't expecting it, so that's going away. Not sure those changes hit
Test 1, though.
There's more configuration required if you want to have Kerberos
credentials available *after* you log in, and that hasn't been done yet.
I'll spare you the details.
