How to get one batch file to call another one, when it is finished?

I'm trying to run some scheduled tasks on a Windows Server 2003 machine, and I don't want to run them concurrently. But I do want them to run back-to-back. If I start one batch file from the Scheduled Tasks on the server, can I have that batch file call another one, as soon as it completes? Hope I have the right forum for this. (Please advise if need be.) This is kind of urgent and I have no idea, but I think it's difficult. I award points accordingly. Thanks for your time.
