Setup Win2k server in existing domain without impacting future upgrade of that domain to Win2k

I want to set up a Win2k server in an existing domain, but I do not want it to impact the future upgrade of that domain to Win2k. Should I install it in mixed mode, or just install it as a member server? What would be the drawback of mixed mode, if any.
You must set the server up as a member server. Mixed Mode only applies to domain controllers. If you make the machine a domain controller, it will be installed with Active Directory and definitely impact the future migration.
