The NT 4 BDC will function just fine, so long as the AD environment =
continues to run in Mixed-mode.

As far are upgradeing.. It's best to take a new server,  install NT4.0 =
as a BDC.  Once that's complete,  sync and promote to a PDC.  Now =
upgrade the new NT 4.0 PDC to W2k.

Do some research, I think your BDC's will have a problem since Win2K =
uses AD, etc....
