Windows 2000 and 2003 server in same domain

Simple question.  We have 2 windows 2000 servers, I want to add a Windows 2003 server as just a member server into the domain.  There isnt any reason why I cannot do this is there.  Just being cautious as its the first time we will have used 2003

so you want to join a windows 2003 to act as a server?  During installation of win 2003, just dont make it a domain controller. Make it as a server. you will be prompted for your domain username and password.

it's no problem to add a member server
only if you want to make it a domain controller you have to run 2 utilities (upgrade schema and domain, as I remember)
