[Samba] URGENT! Windows Server 2003 SP2 broke samba

Reading the "How To Compile Samba" leads me to this question. Must I 
compile Samba with AD support as described in that document in order 
for the Samba server to be able to have userids/passwords authenticated 
by a W2K3/SP2 AD?

I only need to be able to continue to provide access to users' Unix 
home directories from their PCs via a Windows login script that 
includes: net use s: \\sambasvr\username  (where username is the same 
for both Unix and Windows).
Gee! I wish I had seen this coming!

Please update to the current version of Samba as soon as possible. The 
you are using has many problems with Windows 2003/XP. The current 
version is 
3.0.25a - yours dates back to around December 2003 - that is very old, 
out of 
date, and will not work with SP2 or later.
