had to uninstall kb958644 on SBS - no logins except console available

Using Windows SBS 2003 with latest patches, after these security patches were installed:
kb956841
kb954211
kb958644  **
kb938464
kb957095
kb956803
After the server was rebooted, no one could login and workstations could not find the server for any sort of authentication.   Uninstalling only that specific windows critical patch (958644) after a lengthy reboot allowed the server to come back normally.  

WHY?  I have had no problems installing the patch on other regular windows 2003 servers.  Is this/will this be a known issue with SBS?  What should I do to prepare for installing it at some point in the future?

Additional Information: Even though we resolved it by removing the 958644 patch, the type of error we got is similar to below apparently for other patches:

958644 apparently killed both the wireless card and ethernet adapter this afternoon in my Dell laptop. It was the only update waiting to be installed. After the required reboot my wireless card would not detect any wireless networks and Network Connections showed its status as Disabled. Using the Enable command in its context menu brought the message that it couldn't communicate with the card.  I tried updating the drivers for the NIC, but they wouldn't update and the troubleshooting wizard recommended uninstalling it and letting windows detect it again... but after uninstalling it started looking just like the wireless card - showing Disabled in Network Connections and refusing to Enable. Rebooted numerous times. After a couple hours of banging my head against the wall I finally resorted to using a restore point... made just prior to the update. I'm back online now, so I'm not sure what else it might have been besides 958644.

I've installed this patch on about a dozen SBSs and only one had this problem, or any problem after installing it for that matter.

What's wrong with keeping the patch installed, but following the directions in that event log? I disabled IPSec and rebooted. I don't fully understand the implications of doing so - can any one illuminiate me?

Per Microsoft Technical Support and the links below, I followed the procedures on port exclusions and then installed the patch successfully.

I think we're talking about 958644, not 953230.

BTW, has anyone else seen a lot more "Allocated Memory" alerts since installing 958644. Could be coincidental.

Anyway, for the one server that I mentioned earlier, I ended up uninstalling 958644 because some other services were failing. Sorry, I can't remember which. All good after uninstalling 958644.

Just an FYI for additional info on this patch. We also had to uninstall KB958644 abd KB957280, because it messed with the domain trust within a single forest (Windows 2000). You could still verify the trust successfully using nltest, but any logon attempt from member servers or workstations would tell you that the trust was broken. Uninstalling these patches resolved the issue.
