move NT4 PDC as a server to 2003 domain

I have a domain that has only a NT4 PDC and need to move it to a new 2003 domain. it will not be a DC on the new domain. can I demote the PDC to just a server before moving it?

Thanks for the link, but the new domain is already up and running with its own DC. I just want to move it as just a server.

NT does not natively support demoting domain controllers like 2000/2003. You have to either reinstall it or use a third-party tool for demoting. One of them is UPromote: http://utools.com/UPromote.asp

hope this helps
