Changing over to Native Mode after upgrading to Windows 2000

I have upgraded my NT4.0 PDC and BDCs to Windows 2000 Server. Can I now change over to Native Mode without causing problems for my remaining NT4.0 member servers?

I have upgraded my NT4 PDC and BDCs to Win2k Server. Can I now change over to Native Mode without causing problems for my remaining NT4 member servers? I have two NT4 Terminal Servers remaining on my network, one is a sandbox and the other runs the company MRP database (very crucial to business). I cannot afford to have this box negatively affected in any way. The MRP system will not run on Win2k.
The requirements for switching to Native mode are that all of the NT 4.0 Domain controllers be on Win2k. You can still have Windows NT 4.0 member servers. Check out the Win2k Resource Kit, Deployment Planning Guide Chapter 10 for more information on Native Mode/Mixed Mode migration.
