As per Microsoft: "This behavior occurs because the Windows NT 4.0 Setup routine creates an account of class User instead of class computer. To add a Windows NT 4.0-based BDC to a domain with a Windows 2000 client as the PDC, use the Srvmgr tool that is included with Windows 2000. You should run this version of the tool only on the Windows 2000 client to pre-create the computer account for the BDC. After you create the account, the BDC installation should finish successfully.
