This might seem a little stupid I know... but here goes. I have a small office client who doesn't want to replace their server hardware just server software. There is no good upgrade option for them being that their old system is Windows server NT/Exchange 5.5. Is there any way I can do a parrallel install of SBS 2003 on that server and keep the same domain settings? It seems I've done a parallel install like this before and even though the local domain name was kept the same, client machines didn't recognize it as the same domain and all clients had to be re-added to the new domain and all settings had to be migrated.

I understand this might be a little confusing. Please ask if you need clarification.
