Because of known and/or suspected compatibility issues with Windows 2003 
Server SP1 and Windows 2000 Server security rollups.


Mind you this is just Red Hat's documented issues that may or may not 
translate to other systems. I had to do it in order to get my Samba 
server to complete authentication with an Active Directory domain 
running on Windows 2003 Server SP1 in native mode. Your mileage may vary.
