Is it possible to have a Windows 2000 server, that is part of a workgroup, have a trust relationship with a Windows Server 2003 Domain.  In the environment that I have I am not able to make the workgroup a domain.

    No, you can only have trusts between domains.

    if you only want to connect to shares of the domain, you can use "connect as".
    if you want to do administrative tasks, you can connect to IPC$ ("net use \\servername\IPC$") to connect as an domain user.
    as soon as this connection is established, all connections to this server are done with this domain credentials.
