OK, I cannot advise setting up a new NT4 domain, but if you must, you
must, I just think you will come to regret it ;-)

It has been quite some time since I last set up a PDC in production,
but, from memory, I would remove the 'security = user' line. I also
seem to remember that when the PDC goes down, you need to promote the
BDC to a PDC by changing the 'domain master' line.
