Exchange 2003 will run fine on a Windows 2003 member server. Just make sure you migrate all your mailboxes and other settings to your new server before uninstalling Exchange from the DC.

Also, don't forget that you can't make the member server a DC in the future whilst Exchange is installed as this will break Exchange, so don't leave that out in any provisioning you are doing now.

As you are running Exchange 2000 you will need to prep the forest and domain for the new version. Put the Exchange 2003 CD in to the server and let it autoplay. It will give you a checklist of things that you have to do.

Yes, since you are upgrading from 2000 to 2003, you will have to extend your Active Directory schema to allow Exchange 2003 to store the new Exchange 2003-specific classes and attributes.
