2003 server on a 2000 network

I currently have a windows 2000 network with 2 DC's and 2 Member servers.

I would like to make one of those member servers a 2003 server.

I know if you want to have a 2003 domain controller, you need to upgrade the schema.  Is this true for a 2003 member server?  or can I just install 2003 on a computer and bring it online without having to make any upgrades to the network?

I was pretty sure that you could just install 2003 on a member server and bring it online, but after reading some of microsofts documentation, I got a bit confused.

Thanks!
Scott

Looks like it will be no problem... which is waht I also expected.  A friend of mine also said its no problem whom upgraded his network to 2003 already.  I have not even seen it yet though :(

I have installed 2003 members servers into a 2000 domain without any problems.  Had no errors and integrates into AD fine.  Problems only occur if you want a 2003 DC
