thank you for your answer,
I will discuss with my team of active directory, kerberos and pkinit today.

I think you understood our problem in the main facts, we have windowsXP
clients (sp2, all fixes) and linux clients (debians, ubunto and others
debian like).

The main security problem is linked to the datas stored on the file
server and the crossing of an open network (worldwide intranet) to
connect our distant agencies.

I think we're going to put as you propose a ssl tunnel controlled by a
small openvpn server or ssltunel with a good control of certificates
validity. The advantage of this solution is that we have lots of clients
that implements certificates much better than 802.1X API in windows
implements it.

But the problem with this, as you said, samba will not deal with it, and
we're going to ask for our customers to remember another login/pass...
