Okay, two differnet questions here.
1. I have a user that wants me to make a backup of there profile it is aon a windows 2000 workstation. how would I do this

The best way is to log onto the system ad administrator.  Go into c:\documents and settings\username  Copy that whole folder to your backup location.  Another handy trick is to right click on My Computer and go into the profiles and hightly the user and choose copy.  You can choose the location you want.  It depends on what you want it to do.  A lot of times I get a profile just how I want it and then copy it to the default users profile, so that all new users get the profile.  Its a handy way to del with things like printers in small environments

2.Also they are moving from a windows 2000 domain to a windows 2003 server domain. how woudl I do this? Thank you

This is much more involved.  There are two scenarios.  In place upgrade BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Avoid at all costs

The second way is easy and simple.  You build a new server with Windows 2003 and join it to the domain.  You make sure that it has a static IP and DNS is set to point to your existing internal 2000 AD DNS Servers and then you run dcpromo.  This will upgrade your domain to 2003.  Make sure all FSMOP roles have been transferred to the new DC.  See windows help if you get stuck.  Then you are done.
