Now andrew, you know that 2.2.x can operate in a native
Win2k domain using NTLM.  :-)  Just not kerberos, which is 
what I know you were referring to.

I had difficulties getting 2.2.5 to do encrypted authentication on a
Win2K Domain in native mode.  HEAD was much easier to get up and running
correctly.  I must say that I would recommend using it.
