Windows 2000 allows you to demote a domain controller to a member server.
You will need to reinstall an NT 4.0 domain controller to turn it into a
member server.

A member server can join a Samba domain just like any other machine.

I would recommend getting another machine and testing the entire process
before making changes to your production machine.
