Authentification of your Web apps

Is there any secret to getting Directory Services to authenticate a Web Client against Active Directory?

Specifically, we want to use the same login name for our Web apps hosted on Domino and our AD Domain. We would also like to use AD groups in our ACL's and not Fully Distinguished names. We have a fairly distributed AD OU structure.
This can be very tricky. For authentication of your Web apps, you can try two things. First would be running IIS as your HTTP stack on top of Domino. This is a very complicated setup, which requires an experienced administrator to install and configure properly. Your second option is to try Directory Assistance with your AD as a trusted LDAP directory. I haven't tried option two for ACL lists. I don't know if it will work.
