Interestingly putting Windows 2003 Server in domain mode enables signing
(which is not required to access the server before you run the
ActiveDirectory promo wizard) but as we saw at Connectathon & the CIFS
conference this breaks most if not all of the clients, I will have my work
cut out getting the cifs vfs code for this working and accepted by Linus
before 2.5 goes gold (so we have a working Linux client to access Windows
2003 Domain Controllers)
