Kind of. 2.0.7 can serve shares to Win2k clients. I am composing this on
a win2k server that relies on this behaviour. 
Win2k however refues to join a 2.0.7 domain.

<my two cents>
I use 2.0.7 each and everyday to run machines in my department here at
the university. It runs my domain beautifully. For code that's not
supposed to be supported I think it's incredible.
