Windows 2000 server as an NT4 PDC?

We've got a windows 2000 server. Is there a way of making it work as a NT4 PDC WITHOUT using active directory?

Why would you want to?  Win2K AD offers lots more possibilities and is, at the end of the day, easier to work with than WinNT 4 DC.

If the complexity scares you, don't worry, AD is more forgiving than WinNT 4 and you can roll back most changes (even switching between standard server -> Domain Controller and back).
Yes if you install NT4. Just kidding but the answer is no since it has to be a DC and have the PDC emulator role to be able to function as a NT4 PDC

Thanks for the input guys.

I didnt think you could. Believe me if I was aloud to roll out active directory I would... but the organisation I work for are a bit slow to embrace new technologies to say the least.
Hehe...  Not exactly 'new technology' .... Active Directory is 5 years old.
