Yes.  That is what I meant to say.  Riddle me this then....

Using all NT 5 servers running Active directory, will they 
provide backwards compatibilty with NT domains?  In other 
words, does a NT4 domain have to run separately (and sych'd)
with Active directory?  Or does an AD server "downgrade"
when it receives an NT4 style domain login?

Just curious,
