adprep error on new 2003 server in 2000/2003 domain.

I am trying to install AD on a new 2003 server in my 2000/2003 domain and am getting an error from the AD install wizard.  I have already run adprep /forestprep and /domainprep on the 2000 PDC (with FSMO roles) successfully.

Then error is:
"The version of the Active Directory schema of the source forest is not compatible with the version of Active Directory on this computer"

I have 3 2000 domain controllers.  The new 2003 server would be the first 2003 DC.
