[Samba] 2.2.8a/2.2.12, security = domain and W2K3 PDC

When there was a W2K DC in our network we were able to join the domain, but
now that all DCs have been converted to W2K3 we're getting the following
message when we try to use smbpasswd to join a new machine to the domain:

Error connecting to xxxxxxxxx - NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
Unable to join domain xxxxxxxxxxxxx

I just noticed in the Samba-HOWTO-Collection, chapter 6, "Common Errors"
section, these sentences under the "I Can't Join a Windows 2003 PDC"

"Windows 2003 requires SMB signing. Client side SMB signing has been
implemented in Samba-3.0."

Is there any way for a 2.2.8a/2.2.12 client to join a domain whose domain
controllers are all W2K3?
