[Samba] Samba and Windows 2000 server ---the fight begins---

I am trying to demote a windows 2000 server and then have it join the 
same domain it belongs to currently, but I want my Samba server to 
become the PDC
 ...? is this easily done ?....
  I don't mind losing domain users on the 2000 server which I am 
assuming will happen once I demote it.

My windows 2000 server acts as a DNS for our intranet.
Because of the windows 2000 server's well equiped hardware I am going to 
continue to use it as DNS and utilize it as a network backup ....I will 
create a mapped drive from the Samba server and backup all folders and 
files.   I have thought about creating an NFS mount for the Samba home 
directory and backing it up to the windows 2000 server that way, but I 
am not sure.  Any thoughts?

Thank you in advance,
