Windows 2000 BDC and Windows NT 4 SP5 PD

It is *not* possible.
Firstly W2K doesn't have the concept of BDC's. They only have DC's and member servers, and indeed one of the DC's acts as a 'PDC emulator' for downlevel clients.
A W2K server in a NT domain can only have two roles:
* member server (so without Active Directory)
* PDC (well DC with the PDC emulator role), but then you have a mixed-mode W2K/NT domain which definitely has impact for the logging-in workstations and users.

Hope this helps,

Eric answers are right. The thing to remember is this a Windows2000 DC will use active directory, not a NT SAM database. So if you want your Win2K server to be a DC, you have to move to Active Directory. You can still have downlevel (NT4) BDCs which AD handles through the PDC Emulator, and your Directory operates in mixed mode.
