Could you tell us, how you managed to keep the same domain name and the
old PDC's NetBios name?

(I always thought that a (NT4-)PDC can't be demoted to anything less
than a BDC without re-installing the whole thing. This combined with
Samba 2.2 not being able to handle BDCs would render it impossible to
keep the old domain/NetBios names... but it galdly seems I was wrong!?)

Many thanks in advance!!
