I want to add a win2003server (stand-alone) to a win 2k AD domain. Any counter-indications? I do not for the moment wish to upgrade to win2003 AD.

Should be no problem.
We're doing it here (as I type in fact ;)

You just double-checking or have some specific concerns?

Just double checking 'cause i also have an ecchange 5.5 server on the AD and I'm nervous about compatibility/ms-exchange issues. I want to keep those upgrades-migrations for a bit later.

Hmmm - can't say from personal experience there then - since we're on E2k.
But, again - it shouldn't matter since you're only adding it as a standalone (ours are participating in AD)...

So finally found out on my own like a big boy. :-) , the schema must be updated first on the domain-forest then the win2003 can be a participating member of a Win2k domain.
