Fileserver upgrade to Win2K

I want to upgrade a simple fileserver to Windows 2000 to take advantage of features such as quotas. We are currently running our infrastructure on NT4, and we therefore don't have any Active Directory Services. If I upgrade this fileserver to Win2K, will there be any problems using this with an NT4 Domain Controller, and will it cause any problems in the future when we do upgrade everything else to Win2k?

THanks

No - but we are talking about a mirosoft product so something weird COULD happen.  I upgraded several of our file servers to Win2K back in 2000.  Never had a problem.  Upgrade was painless (believe it or not - just put the CD in, answer two or three questions, enter the key, go get some lunch (or dinner) and come back to a server running 2000.

I just (1-2 months ago) setup AD - no problems.  Everything was smooth - you should be just fine.  BUT - JUST IN CASE - BACKUP EVERYTHING FIRST.
