All windows 2000 Server installation believe themselves to be member severs when they are initially installed. To create the server as a domain controller, an administrator needs to run dcpromo.exe to install Active Directory. The easiest way to make a domain controller a member server (and the only way, as far as I know) is to re-run dcpromo.exe and choose to remove Active Directory from that server.
