Almost. Windows 2000 uses Kerberos for authentication, and the SSPI which 
is an early version of the Kerberos GSSAPI. It uses the same protocol as 
the Kerberos GSSAPI. So if the ssh client and server use the GSSAPI then 
you are close. 

You still need a server for Windows. There may be one out there.
