I'm busy writing software for a school, and they use Active Directory to login. That want to use it to log into to my software as-well, as the apparently the teachers are bad with passwords lol.

Has any one worked with Active Directory yet? or can anyone advise me where to start ... thanks.

I would strongly encourage the use of an SQL Server backend on systems with an AD domain. The entry level Express (whatever it is currently called) is free.

The Views and Procedures on SQL Server along with the fine grained permissions are a real bonus when you can control access through AD Groups. It stops nasty accidents with sensitive data.

I have contributed to a number of threads on querying Active Directory on this board.
