5.5 to 2000 Upgrade - Distribution List Question

I am upgrading an Exchange 5.5 server to Exchange 2000. The server is currently on Win 2k, running AD, but not in a Native domain.

I was told by a colleague that when I run the upgrade from 5.5 to 2000 that I will loose all of the distribution lists, and that these will need to be recreated under Exchange 2000. Is this true? If so, can these DLs be exported and then imported under 2000? I have 97 DLs, so you can see my hesitation in having to recreate all of them. Any tools or tricks that can be used would be great to know about.

The upgrade should bring all of your DLs over as Universal Distribution Groups.  The only problems I know of are if you have ACLed public folders with the DLs.
