This probably means the OpenSSH version in RHEL3 does not support
Kerberos.  Replace it with one that does.

That depends on what SSH client you're using on XP.  If it uses MIT
Kerberos, then it's straightforward.  If it uses the native Windows
Kerberos (via SSPI), then it's a little more complicated to get Windows to
use the Linux-based realm.  A little googling will turn up information on
it; it involves ksetup.exe.
