Use the PrefPDC tool from the NT resource kit.
This only needs to be run once for each workstation, and changes the DC to which preferable authentication happens to what you tell it - in your case the BDC.

Hope thiz helpz,

here's my suggestion:

LMHOSTS file

A local text file that maps IP addresses to the computer names of Windows NT networking computers outside the local subnet. In Windows?NT, this file is stored in the \systemroot \System32\Drivers\Etc directory.

you'll find help in the header of the file

sample:

bdc-ipadress bdc-netname pre dom:yourdomain


good luck

I think you'll find that the tool the first respondent is referring to is setprfdc.exe :)
