active directory replication to member server and exchange

We currently have a domain controller (server) and another domain controller, AD not in use, that hosts exchange (mailserver). we have win2k on both and the exchange is 5.5. we have no replication of any kind and all we do is map our mail accounts to an NT user. we are looking to have a backup for our AD and upgrade exchange to 2000. what would be the ideal replication/synchronization scheme for our situation? we would like to replicate AD to our member server, and we need to keep exchange up to date with synchronization of its information. i'm thinking we have exchange on mailserver sync with active directory on the main server, and that AD would in turn right back to the mailserver/AD backup. would this be a good idea?

Install the ADC (Active Directory Connector) from the E2k CD. The article below should help in explaining some:

p.s. Normally people won't answer a question with very low points like this one. I would suggest a minimum of 125 in the future and probably more like 500 for a more complex question such as this one (Win2k with E5.5 to E2k upgrade). Anotherwords, you get what you pay for.    :-)
