I have an existing Windows 2003 forest that is currently running at Widows 2000 Native Functional Level and I have a trust with an existing NT4 domain.  This has been in place for some time.  If I raise the functional level of the Windows 2003 forest to Windows 2003 is my trust still going to work, or am I headed for a train wreck?

The trust will still work. The functional level of a domain only affects down-level domain controllers in the same domain (so you won't be able to have Windows 2000 DCs anymore in this domain), but not trusts to other domains.
