Starting from scratch

I am at a company that has no internal web site, ECM, or WCM.  I am looking at setting up a few things.

1. ECM and records management using alfresco for Quality, Engineering, HR…
2. An intranet site where individual departments are responsible for content.

After some research, I like what alfresco has to offer.  I was able to get it up and running and integrated with Active Directory. I also like some things that Lifray offers for building an internal web site. The question is, what is the best way to use these two together?

I have not tried the Alfresco WCM module, does that provide the same features as liferay?

I have tried some things on my machine and am now getting ready to start with a nice new clean slate server.

If I decide to use lifreray should I install them both into one tomcat instance? Should I install liferay first and drop the alfresco war into that VM?
I would like integrate both with Active Directory with single sign on between them. As I said I was able to intgrate Alfresco with AD but are there any issues with getting them both integrated together?

Any other suggestions would be welcome.  Like I said I am starting with a clean server and no content so I would like to set up the best framework for my user community as possible.  If this is not easy to use I'll never get these people to contribute.

Thanks,

Chris Hanneman
