Coping Active Directory from a 2000 DC to a 2003 DC

I have a sever running Windows 2000 Advanced server. I want to do a new install of Windows 2003 standard server on the machine. Is it possible to backup the active directory on the Windows 2000 server then restore it into the new copy of Windows 2003 Standard server? What I want to accomplish is to copy all of the user accounts and passwords to the new server. Thanks for in help you can provide on this issue.

No it is not possible to do it the way you describe - you can use the ADMT - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6f86937b-533a-466d-a8e8-aff85ad3d212&displaylang=en
or you can install the Win2003 server on another machine, make it an additional DC and then demote the old DC after moving the FSMO roles and other services.
