PAM authentication against a Win2000 domain controler

It would save me maintaining passwords
if I could authenticate against a Windows 2000 domain.
PAM has all the modules I need to check:
admins can get in with normal unix passwords in a cutdown shadow.
other users must still be in /etc/passwd
and they must have a valid shell
and their password must be accepted by the domain controller
Another site uses pam_krb5 but it just fails every time for me.
Anyone got this working?
I'm deeply suspicious of microsoft's implementations
but anyone got any advice about the most robust,
closest-to-a-standard protocol to attach with?
