You should be able to use FreeBSD's Samba and OpenLDAP port without 
issue.  I haven't used Samba with LDAP (probably Active Directory in 
your case), but I know it's supported.  As for connecting Windows 
clients, Samba does include a NetBIOS nameserver with WINS support.

Here are a couple of links to get you started:
