Can SBS 2003 be added to the domain 2003 Standard Domain Controller or vice versa?

I have 3 servers: A 2000 Advanced Server, a 2003 Small Business Server, and a 2003 Standard Server. I would like to have one set of user accounts for all three servers. I am wondering what the best way to configure or even if I can figure so that all three utilize the same accounts under the same domain?

"You can have other domain controllers and member servers in your Small Business Server network, however, Small Business Server 2000 must be set up as the root domain controller of a Microsoft Active Directory forest. This set up can prevent Small Business Server 2000 from serving as a corporate branch office or a divisional server of a larger organization with an existing Active Directory or Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 domain infrastructure. Small Business Server 2000 cannot be added to an existing domain. You must install the Small Business Server domain first, and then you can add additional domain controllers or member servers to the Small Business Server 2000 domain"

The answer is yes.  The SBS must be used to create the domain and later add the two standard edition servers to the domain.
good luck... hope this helps
