This is a question for samba at The technical list deals with
the development of the Samba project.

To quickly answer your question:
Yes, it can authenticate Windows 2000 clients, but not in an Active
Directory kinda way. Samba will act as a Native PDC (NT4).

I've read  that samba can act as a domain controller for Win95/98/NT
Can samba authenticate Win 2000 client domain logins?
