Changing W2K Server from workgroup to PDC

I've installed W2k Server as a stand-alone, now I want it to be PDC (or the W2K equivalent).  We aren't using Active Directory, and currently all the clients will be Win95/98, but that will change.

If you want that server to act as a PDC (DC) it is going to install AD, even if you don't use it.  You can make it a participant in the network without making it a PDC (DC) by running "Configure your Server" and set it up as a member server, rather than a standalone.  If you want it to participate in replication, however, it will need to be a DC.

Run DCpromo.exe on the server and go through the wizard.

DCpromo is installing ActiveDirectory, which we aren't planning on using (I mentioned that above).
