I have such problem. When I've installed WINS and DHCP on the PDC server it seems that something works bad because neither WINS nor DHCP is starting and the communicates about that are:

event 7001 - the Windows Internet Name Service service  depends on the NT LM Security Support Provider service which failed to start because of the following error: after starting the service hung in a start-pending state.

(Above is the same in DHCP server starting also)

event 7022 - the NT LM Security support provider hung on starting

The computer is IBM Netfinity 5000 with Windows NT 4.0 & SP6a

I've done what was advised in the technet article that means took srv.sys with new creation date and time and copied it into \winnt\system32\drivers\ and after the server restart nothing had change the NTLMSSP is again start pending.
It the RPC configuration service installed?

What, if any, third party software do you have on the PDC?

1. I have reinstalled network driver and some other services (it was impossible to remove Server & Workstation in the PDC) of course RPC Configuration service is also installed (Netbios interface as well);

2. There is no third party software on the PDC;

Try reapplying the latest service pack and see if this fixes the problem.
