We have added a new computer as what we hope will be a File Server to an existing domain.  We installed Windows 2003 Server on the new computer hoping to add it to the domain (again just for file storage space) but now the new server is shutting down because it wants to be the domain controller.  We don't need the new computer to do anything except be a file storage computer.  The main server is running Windows 2003 Server.
