If you want to authenticate on the pc against AD (in other words have people 
log on to it with their username and password from AD) I'd suggest you have a 
look at PAM. However, I'm not sure if there is a module (LDAP or SAMBA/NTLM) 
that supports AD.

If you just want apt-get to work (as I think you do) through a proxy that 
requires authentication, a simple 'man apt.conf' will pull up the answer for 
you  :)

You could set up a proxy on the machine, but it's really not so hard to go via 
the proxy that needs authentication.

For the proxy server authentication, you need nothing special. If you want AD 
to manage your accounts, you'll probably need SAMBA. (set up samba with AD as 
backend, and use a PAM module to login)
