ugrading to windows 2003 server

We have a need to upgrade to win2k03 servers. In particular we are looking for the new and more stable features of Terminal Services in regards to printing. I have one unpopulated parent (root) domain and several children domains underneath. We are planning to install the upgrade on the root first and then one of our children domains (the one with the TS problems).
Question is, can I just upgrade over the current win2k environment? What special do I have to do on the DC's? Should I reduce the number of dc's for this upgrade process?
Any insight will be appreciated
Thanks

How many Dc's do you have at the root?
You will have to run ADPREP / forestprep to upgrade AD schema to 2003, as well as ADPREP /domainprep for the root and an domain where 2003 DC is going to be running.If you have Exchange in the root or any child domain where 2003 DC is going to be you need to do a fix first to sort out an attirb problem
