Wow, how do you inadvertantly upgrade to a different operating system? (:

Samba 2.0.7pre fixes at least one bug related to Windows 2000.
(Actually it's a Windows bug, worked around in Samba.)  I think 2.0.6
might have fixed one or more as well.

For plaintext passwords, see the .reg file in the docs/ directory (in
2.0.6, not sure if it's in 2.0.5).
