If you must use NIS, then all you have available is to install services
for unix on the windows box. This can sync local users with NIS users,
aswell as AD with NIS.
You can get your *nix boxen speaking AD though, fairly straight forward
Or you could use migrate them to LDAP, and your windows box can auth
with that aswell, burt its tricky as MS use a different LDAP/kerberos
implementation in AD.
We sync all our machines with AD in our lab, linux / unix / windows. Its
