no you can't do this since you would be restoring a 2000AD to a 2003AD, simply won't work. The AD databases are far from the same.

Possible as long as hardware and OS editions are same.

Eh...

Disregard my previous post.

You can use ADMT to transfer leaf objects from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003.
