Check if you have the correct encryption mechanism; MS Windows 2000 uses CRC by default, not MD5. MS Windows 2003 seems to use MD5 by default, but better make sure. Oracle wants MD5. More options on http://vanbortel.blogspot.com, the "Kerberos errors" entry.
If the encryption type is the cause, it should become visible when tracing.
Just curious - why kerberos on Windows when OS authetication will work? Even AD for LDAP is supported on MS.
