Can we use a Windows 2000 DHCP server in an NT 4.0 domain?

We currently have an NT domain. We intend to migrate to Windows 2000 by the end of the year. We have a situation where we have to replace our DHCP servers. Could we use a Win2k DHCP server in an NT domain, or should be stick to NT DHCP servers till we move to a Win2k domain?

You can use the Windows 2000 DHCP server in the NT 4.0 domain -- no problem there. However, when you upgrade you will need to ?Authorize? the server once the system realizes it is now in an Windows 2000 domain.
