We have used mod_auth_krb on an apache server on a linux box, and mixed
linux and windows clients, all was OK.

You can also use mod_auth_pam, and configure your linux server to use
kerberos (or winbind, or whatever) with PAM.

Generally our experience has been that the linux clients are quicker
than the windows clients.
