Do you just want the GAL or are you intending to move mailboxes as well? Is the GAL you want to move going to be another avaiable address book on the EX2000 server?

Actually, you can have a connector even with the servers in different domain and/or organizations.  You'd install the Active Directory Connector on the Exchange 200 box and setup a one-way inter-organizational connection from Exchange (5.5) to Windows.

It will allow you to specify which containers in Ex 5.5 to pull addresses from (you can specify multiple) and which Windows 2000 OU you want to drop them into (you'll need to setup the OU).  The process will ask for a username and password for accessing the Exchange 5.5 directory and a Windows 2000 account for accessing the AD.
