Oops - that was a bit silly. I think the answer is in fact you
should be able to use pre-3.0 Samba as long as you create the
machine account as "pre-Windows 2000" and configure your domain
to have "permissions compatible with pre-Windows 2000 machines".
This means basically having the Everyone SID in the "pre-Windows
2000 Compatible Access" builtin group.
