This might not be easy.  But on the other hand, it's to the best of my
knowledge unknown what happens when you send a request to a w2k
application server without the SID:s (and other stuff) in the ticket.
It could, in theory at least, fetch that information from the active
directory.  It might also refuse to accept the request.  Experiments
are required here.

You should be able to get it work with lines similar to the following
in your /etc/krb5.conf:

        REALM = {
                kdc = host:88

Where `REALM' is the name of your w2k domain and `host' is the name of
your domain controller.

Not to my knowledge.
