I currently have an a single NT PDC domain with NT, 2000, and 95 workstations.  I am getting a new differnt machine to use as a 2000 server DC.  
What is the best way to move everyone from the NT DC to the New 2000 DC?

Another, easier way to do this is to setup the new server with NT 4 and make it a BDC on your domain. Promote it to a PDC, then upgrade to Win2000/AD
