Knowledge updated and i do apologise dan is indeed correct you can 
authenticate against windows active directory using winbind!


For details take a look at the above really straightforward.
Thanks Dan

The only problem you may encounter is SBS is a one server solution try the 
above as it is only a domain member not classed as a server.
