You need to put the 2003 CD in the 2000 machine and run adprep /forestprep ans adprep /domainprep on the exisiting 2000 DC.

BTW - if its the "normal" 2003 server use adprep from the i386 folder - if its the R2 version use Adprep from the \CMPNENTS\R2\ folder on CD2

regardless of the operating system "adprep /forestprep" should run on the DC with the "schema master" role.
And if i remember this the right way, you have to be schema master user.
per default a domain admin is NOT member of this group.
