On win2k its not the default.

If you use AD then its in your domain group policy, otherwise goto 
start:programs:admin tools:local security policy:local policies:security 
options:Lan Manager Authentication level

I recommend setting to "Send NTLMv2 response only, refuse LM" which is one 
setting below the highest and will allow NTLM authentication.

Also if you haven't looked at this before you should google for the registry 
tweak to make sure LM hashes aren't stored for backwards compatibility.  LC4 
can break a weak password LM hash in under a second.
