The only thing of importance would b if you still have NT4 *domain* *controllers*. You can have as many NT4 domain *members* in an AD running in W2k native mode (or higher) as you feel like having.

Native / Mixed mode : It is all about the servers and not the clients.

Plus , u should already have the DFS and Active Directory client installed on the win 98 machine .

The second thing u need to take in consideration is that : The move from mixed mode to native mode is ONE WAY ONLY !!!!

I know its a one way only thing. I have no NT machines and all  my DC's RE win 2k3 I only. So it should be safe for me to move to native mode.

If you only have W2k3 DCs, and are not planning to introduce W2k DCs, you can just go to plain W2k3 functional level. You'd only need to stop at "mixed mode" if you still have W2k DCs (again: the functional level will only influence lower-level domain controllers, not regular domain members; and Win9x based machines can't be added to a domain anyway).
