Win 2003 SBS with another DC

I am installing 2 new servers in my office, I was planning on going with the main server Win 2003 SBS and for my second server with Server 2003 as a domain controller. Can I do this with SBS or can my second server be only a member server ?

SBS2003 will support another Domain Controller, but it must be the first DC in the forest and must be at the root of the forest.
Also you will not bea able to transfer the FSMO roles off the server if you want to expand your domain in the future.

Make the other server a Global Catalog and remove the Global Catalog from the SBS after that.
