Can you make a Windows 2000 Server act like a BDC -- through rather unscrupulous means yes. Is it something you
should do -- no.
Even if you can, a Windows 2000 BDC would offer you no advantage over a Windows NT 4.0 BDC. The system would not offer you any of the new slick features of Windows 2000 or Active Directory. You are better off spending your time and energy on coming up with a solid plan for migration to Windows 2000 and Active Directory than trying to force a Windows 2000 server into a role it is not meant to have.
