Integrating 2003 SBS server

I have a Windows 2000 server domain controller that I will be putting in a new Windows 2003 SBS Standard Edition on the same domain.  I can do this as long as I make the new Windows 2003 SBS server a DC as well correct?  Can I just build the new server and run DC promo and it will bring a copy of Active Directory over to the new server as well.  The new 2003 SBS server will be running Exchange only.

SBS must be your FSMO master DC, not JUST a DC.  For incorporating SBS into an existing domain, see:

If I remeber well your SBS won't accept to join into domain. The SBS must be the first in the domain. So install the SBS, then migrate your existing domain to SBS. After uninstall the AD from old server and join him to the new domain.

If you read my comment and the Microsoft Link I provided you would know that was incorrect.
