Thanks Matt, what I didn't realise is that I've almost set-up BDC's before on our existing systems 
just made them standalone servers.

I'll have a play on a test box and see what the other differences are but I think it's just the 
domain master line & then need to think about nfs mounts for /homes & profiles (see my other 
question *grin*)
