Problem with win32net on Windows 2K

I am trying to use win32net on a Windows 2000 Japanese system, and 
discover that it won't import.  I found a message describing the 
problem (see below) but can't find any response, and don't see a bug 
report on the  SourceForge site for this. . Can anyone tell me if 
this has ben fixed? An early message in 2000 said that win32net is 
supposed to run on Windows 2000

I find the same problem reported, with more detail, on the py2exe 
user list, where Thomas Heller commented on 2004-08-26 :

   The procedure entry point LsaLookupNames2 could not be located in the
   dynamic link library ADVAPI32.dll

  This looks like the win32net Python extension requires the
  LsaLookupNames2 function in ADVAPI32, but this is only available in
  WinXP and Win2003 Server, according to MSDN, preventing to use win32net
  on win2k.  You should report this to Mark Hammond, and maybe use a later
  version of pywin32 for now.
