Adding a child domain to Windows Server 2003 Domain

I am trying to add a child domain using Windows Server 2003 and am getting the following error "The version of the active directory schema of the source forest is not compatible with the version of active directory on this computer"

The parent domain is running on WINDOWS SERVER 2003 as well so I have no idea why I am getting this error.  I have searched for an answer to this problem and all I can find is that this should only occur when trying to join a W2k domain with a Windows Server 2003 machine.  Does anyone have any idea why I am having this problem.  Thanks!
