Windows 2003 Server in a NT4 Domain

  I currently manage a Windows NT 4.0 domain with a few Windows 2000 member servers and all client run Windows XP Pro. I am planning on purchasing a new server and want to install Windows 2003 Server on it. My question is this. Will a Windows 2003 Server be able to join the NT 4.0 domain as a “member” server and provide DNS, WINS and DHCP services as a member server to the rest of the network? I’m at least a year from migrating the network to Windows 2003 completely, but I do not want to install NT 4.0 on a brand new server.

 Thanks in advance,

There should be no problem; you just can't make it a (B)DC in your NT4 domain.
