If you're new to SAML in general, you need to digest a lot of conceptual
bits to understand the interop issues involved, or you're likely to
struggle. Starting with a pure Shibboleth environment and/or
as an IdP is a better starting point.

The specific issues associated with ADFS are to some extent documented in
the wiki (search yourself, link not handy). Microsoft has a white paper on
the subject, but it's very much overly complicated.
