Exactly the question that I am trying to get answered, too.

What I was able to accomplish:  I setup Samba 3.0.2a and it
was able to see the AD (users/groups) and join into the AD.

BUT... I was not able to get people to authenticate against
Samba.  I kept getting a Kerberos ticket error, and I tried
several configs that I found through Google, none worked.

I am in the process of re-installing my AD (lab setup) into
Mixed Mode to see if Native Mode was my problem.  It seems
as though finding a straight answer to this ? is not easy!

Does Samba 3.0.2a release integrate with Windows Active Directory
running in 2003 Native Mode?  

The situation is that two corporate departments are joining their
network infrastructure.  One department runs several Samba 2.2
servers and the other is a 2003 Native Mode Active Directory.  I
understand that if you upgrade to Samba 3.0 this supports Windows
2000 AD, but it is unclear to me if Samba will integrate seamlessly
with 2003 Native Mode AD environment.  I'm looking for a straight
forward non biased, no BS answer.  If it works cool, I'm not afraid
of the overall work involved.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
