Yes, I just tested it in a 2003 native mode domain. I can "net ads
join", and auth-n a user using krb5 with MD5.

I recommend to new users to start by configuring Samba with
"security=domain", to ensure that they get Samba itself working
correctly before going to Kerberos. Yes - Samba will work using NTLM in
native mode. You might have to change your domain security policy to
accept NTLM. You can also just \\ipaddress\sharename when
"security=ads" and it should fall back to NTLM. Assuming your domain
add worked okay.

Sorry I will not be around to help, leaving for vacation for 10 days.
