[Samba] Migration issue

My samba has been running so flawlessly, I don't think I have posted here in
about 2 years!
But, the time has come to move our windows domain from NT 4 to windows 2000.
Currently, we run samba 2.0.7 on an old RH 6.2 box which hands off all
authentication to the NT4 pdc (we have no bdc currently). I would like to
keep this same style of authentication -- where the samba box passes it off
to a windows2k server. We will be buying a new box to run our new samba file
server on. I plan to run the most current version of samba there.
I want to minimize downtime during this migration, so I am looking for the
best strategy to do this.
Can samba 2.0.7 authenticate against a windows 2000 active directory server?
If it can, then I can build the new machine, and get it ready while users can
still use the old system. If it can't... then I am a little stuck.
Has anyone else done this? Any suggestions?
