Is there any comprehensive list or guide on what registry-changes are 
needed? In the specific case it will be problematic in terms of budget 
to add a domain-switch now as well.

I already tried to upgrade the given domain in a test VM, I always hit 
small issues and therefore hesitated to roll that domain out in production.

Although it shouldn't be that hard, it is a small domain with ~30 users 
and nothing in it aside from users/passwords as far as I understand.

I perfectly understand and agree that the switch would be best, I just 
haven't done that sucessfully before and have to maintain a productive 
environment there all the time.

This is why I stayed with NT4-domain so far and only switched hardware 
and OS recently. Now I see problems with joining PCs to the domain, and 
issues with login scripts etc ... I search and google my way through but 
it doesn't feel solid so far.

Thanks all, nice weekend, Stefan
