I've never actually tried this myself, so take it with a grain of salt, 
but isn't 2k capable or running in two different modes? One where it is 
pure AD and one where it is compatible with NT4? If it was in NT4 mode 
then might not vampire have a chance?

Or am I thinking of some 2k->2k3 change maybe?
