ADC will not bind with exchange 5.5

I am a bit confused as to where and how the ADC needs to be run to merge exchange 5.5 mailboxes to AD 2003.

I have a root forest and a child domain.  Both the 5.5 server and the 2003 server are in the child domain.    I ran forestprep on the root forest and domainprep  onm both the root and child.  (I did this before I attempted to run the ADC.)  I attempted to run ADC both on the root forest domain controller and on the 2003 exchange server itself.  

This is the output from running ADC on the forest root DC:

Current user is 'edouglassadmin\AIRLOGIX' on computer 'DALLASFOREST01'

Pass 1 of 4: Resource Mailbox Scan 07/07/2006 17:24:40
      Warning: Either you do not have permission to view hidden objects in the Exchange 5.5 directory, or the directory is not Exchange 5.5 SP1 or later. Returned information may be inaccurate.

Pass 3 of 4: Active Directory Object Replication Scan 07/07/2006 17:24:40
Warning: Either you do not have permission to view hidden objects in the Exchange 5.5 directory, or the directory is not Exchange 5.5 SP1 or later. Returned information may be inaccurate.
      Warning: The Data Collection tool found mail-enabled users, contacts, or groups that are not replicated from Active Directory to the Exchange 5.5 directory. Running the Connection Agreement Wizard in Step 4 will resolve these issues.

Pass 4 of 4: Active Directory Unmarked Resource Mailbox Scan 07/07/2006 17:24:41
No mail enabled objects found in Active Directory.
      Active Directory Unmarked Resource Mailbox Scan completed.  No problems found.

This is the result from running it on exchange 2003 on the child domain:

Current user is 'edouglassadmin\AIRLOGIX' on computer 'EXCH2K3_DALLAS'

Pass 1 of 4: Resource Mailbox Scan 07/11/2006 08:03:47
      Warning: Either you do not have permission to view hidden objects in the Exchange 5.5 directory, or the directory is not Exchange 5.5 SP1 or later. Returned information may be inaccurate.

Pass 3 of 4: Active Directory Object Replication Scan 07/11/2006 08:03:48
Warning: Either you do not have permission to view hidden objects in the Exchange 5.5 directory, or the directory is not Exchange 5.5 SP1 or later. Returned information may be inaccurate.
      Warning: The Data Collection tool found mail-enabled users, contacts, or groups that are not replicated from Active Directory to the Exchange 5.5 directory. Running the Connection Agreement Wizard in Step 4 will resolve these issues.

Pass 4 of 4: Active Directory Unmarked Resource Mailbox Scan 07/11/2006 08:03:49
No mail enabled objects found in Active Directory.
      Active Directory Unmarked Resource Mailbox Scan completed.  No problems found.

In both situations whan I run step 2 in the ADC it just remains grayed out and I can not continue to step 3.

Is there a problem that forestprep and domainprep was run before ADC?
