I seem to remove 2003 SP2 changed some default to require a more secure 
authentication method.  However, you can change that back using the 
Default Domain Policy.  Grr, does this ring a bell for anyone?  I can't 
remember the specifics.

In any case, it is perfectly possible to run security=domain and join an 
AD forest.  We do it here.
