I have an NT4 Server running as a PDC.  I also have a W2K server on the same network.  I plan to shut down the NT4 box.  I have set up a 2 way trust and I can sucessfully access both servers.  How can I replecate the user accounts from the Nt4 box to the W2K server?

I am assuming the W2k box is an AD server - you can't migrate from a domain to a standalone server without recreating the user accounts from scratch.

To migrate to a NEW AD domain without upgrading the existing NT4 domain you will need to use ADMT - The Active Directory Migration Tool.

Start here and read on:

Alternatively, you can do the following:
Rebuild W2k box as NT4 BDC
Perform in-place OS upgrade of BDC to W2k with AD and once the accounts are transferred over, kill the old PDC
