Scream loudly! Kick something. Break something expensive.

Reinstall win2k in mixed mode.
(I assume irreversible means that the conversion process is one way only)

Send patches to make samba work with win2k in native mode.
(I believe samba does not (yet) work with win2k in native mode. If it
 does then you may want to ignore this mail.)
