Can you reproduce this error using the latest SAMBA_2_2
cvs code?  Also could you send me (offline) a level 10
debug log surrounding the error?  Also, is the Win2k DC
running with or without SP1?

Win2k is supposed to provide full backwards compatibility 
with NetBIOS and ntlmv1.  I would be very interested in 
what is failing.
