Unless I am reading the release notes incorrectly, if you use the 
samba3x packages in CentOS 5.6 which gets you 3.5.4 with security 
patches as opposed to the plain samba packages which only get you a 
hideously old 3.0.x then the NTLM V2 issue goes away as samba supports it.

If you are doing anything with AD and are using CentOS 5.x, then I 
cannot stress the value in upgrading to 5.6 and swapping the samba 
packages for the samba3x packages. Basically the samba3x packages get 
you the same samba as RHEL/CentOS 6, which makes shifting your file 
servers to CentOS 6 in due course much easier.
