The second DC must be Windows 2003 Standard or Enterprise.  It can not be another Windows 2003 SBS server.  Only one Windows 2003 SBS server is allowed per organization.

Please review this document so that you make sure you add your additional DC to the SBS network correctly:  http://sbsurl.com/addserver  

Using just a Win2K Server or standard Server 2003 is fine.  As mentioned above, you can't use another SBS.

Am I really gaining anything by adding a second DC though? What are my options here?

I think you are looking at this from the wrong side of the equation.  You should first ask yourself what issues are of concern to you in your current network configuration and then find a solution to resolve those issues.  Instead, you are looking at a solution and wondering what it will do for you.
