Can I add Windows 2000 Server as a BDC to a Windows NT domain?

I need to add a new server as BDC to my LAN. I currently have one Windows NT 4.0 server that acts as a PDC. Can I add Windows 2000 Server as a BDC to a Windows NT domain?

No. You can only add Windows 2000 machines as DCs into an Active Directory. You will have to use an NT 4.0 BDC until you have converted your PDC and NT 4.0 domain to a Win2k AD.
