SBS 2000 plus Windows Server 2003 as secondary server.

Dear Experts,

I have a small LAN with 18 workstations and a server running SBS 2000.
We are planning to add a new server as Secondary Domain Controller with Windows Server 2003.
In the secondary server we’ll run an application developed in Visual Fox V.7.0
I know that there are no problems to promote a Windows Server 2000 as secondary server in a Domain of SBS 2000, but what happens if the secondary server will be a Windows Server 2003?
What I must do for a good success?
Best regards.

There's no problem there either.  The default configuration of Server 2003 is to operate in a Mixed-Mode Forest funcitonal level.  What this means is that it functions as a Windows 2000 server until the functional level is manually "raised" to Windows Server 2003.  So your SBS2000 won't even know that it's a 2003!  :-)
