I have a small application built on Mono (SuSe 10.0) that
works well on LINUX but on a Windows 2000 machine with .NET 1.1 the
DirectoryServices call -
- where eula is a DirectoryEntry.

On Windows 2000 it fails with...
Unhandled Exception: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80005000):
Unknown error (0x80005000)
   at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind(Boolean throwIfFail)
   at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind()
   at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.get_AdsObject()
   at System.DirectoryServices.PropertyCollection.Contains(String propertyName)
   at MorrisonIndustries.EULAPopUp.EULAForm.LoadEULA()
   at MorrisonIndustries.EULAPopUp.EULAForm..ctor(String[] argv)
   at MorrisonIndustries.EULAPopUp.EULAForm.Main(String[] argv)

... any pointers on what the cause of this might be?
