For Intel systems, get the update at download.microsoft.com/download/winntsp/Patch/SP6a_C2/NT4/EN-US/Q244599i.exe.

Microsoft: If Windows 2000 Professional or Advanced Server is interacting with third-party Kerberos implementations, Microsoft officials say that when a realm is added, the Kerberos realm list may not be updated until the client is rebooted. Microsoft is testing a fix, which will be in a future service pack.
If you must get the fix right away, contact Microsoft Technical Support for this file 2/24/00 10:34 a 205,824 Kerberos.dll.
