There's a similar problem with XP Pro (maybe only SP 2 ?) authenticating
with Samba PDCs.  They use a different authentication mechanism, and you
have to actually disable it in the much-loathed Registry. I know I spent
a good hour or two trying to figure it out after upgrading several
coworkers machines from 2000 to XP Pro.  I'll take a wild guess and say
that they did a similar change in Tiger.
