Cannot join a Win2003 server to a Win2000 domain

I have a new 2003 server (standard) with SP2.  When I try to join it to the domain, single 2000 SP3 DC, I get the following error:

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domianname":
The account is not authorized to log in from this station.

I have tried adding new accounts with admin priv.  
I have tried setting the security policies to DISABLED per Microsoft.  
I cannot upgrade to 2000 server due space limitations and it is validated.
The DC is listed in the 2003's hosts and lmhosts files with the PRE and DOM tags.
The server name has been added to the DC's DNS and created in the Computers CN.
I have read through similar questions and cannot find an answer that works.
Ideas?

Are you attempting to add the server as a DC?  Is this an R2 2003 Server?  If both of the preceeding are true, have you ran ADPREP from the second CD on the 2000 server.

If both of the preceeding were false try this:

On the Window 2003 Server open Control panel > Administrative Tools
Open Local Security Policy > expand Local Policies to select Security Options.
Locate "Microsoft network server: Digitally signed Communications (if server agrees)"
Change this setting to DISABLED

No, the servers are not R2, just 2003 standard.  They will be DCs in the future, but they need to be joined first.  I have already checked the Security Options and they are all set as specified in the KB articles.  I have added this version of 2003 to the network in the past without trouble.

Solution was to remove SP2 from the server, join the network, then reapply.

None of the supplied solutions worked.  If I was able to put SP4 on the DC then they probably would have worked, but that was not an option as it is a validated server.
