Linux Cause Windows Server 2003 Service Problems

At work my current configuration is Windows 2003 Servers, XP desktops and two Linux servers running as part of a workgroup for using Samba file sharing, MySql and Apache web server.

My "Network Engineer" is claiming the Linux boxes are creating problems on the network with Windows 2003 Server, such as time sycnhronization, DNS, DHCP etc.

The most recent problem the network engineer pointed at the linux boxes for messing up the ISA server ability to handle DNS. Though I found in MS KB818821 the problem resided with ISA.

Since Linux is not congifured for ISA, DNS, DHCP, Domain controller or Time Synchronization, is there any way someone knows that Linux can alter these services when they aren't trusted on the domain and not a member of the domain?

I am lost as I have not found anything out there that would indicate this problem could occur either way.
