Not really no, i would say use RADIUS if you want a network wide authentication system...

Sure there's an equivalent: It's called LDAP. In fact, Active Directory is just a proprietary implementation of a vanilla LDAP server (that even supports standard LDAP queries).

Essentially, instead of managing your user/computer accounts in AD you manage them in a standards-based LDAP database such as OpenLDAP or Red Hat Directory Server. Setting up isn't all that hard, just time consuming (i.e. you might have to spend a lot of time manually fiddling with things to get them the way you want).

You can even integrate LDAP with Kerberos authentication to get single sign-on for just about everything you can thing of (SSH, web sites, IM, email, etc). Clients would just login to their desktop via their LDAP login and from then on out any authentication would take place via their kerberos ticket. I've actually already got this setup. The hard part is understanding Kerberos =)
