Yes, it's possible. Here is a good example for SuSE linux.

And here is the manual for Ubuntu linux.

I think that there is no universal way for all linux distributions, but for each of them you can find individual way to connect it to AD.

Likewise Open is a free product that can join Linux computers to the domain. This can save you considerable time if you are not familiar enough with Pam, Kerberos, LDAP and Samba to "manually" configure your Linux machine.
