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.
