Can we manage a mixed AD environment, 2008 and 2003, with AD 2003 management tools?

The reason is, I'd like to start adding Win 2008 domain controllers to our current 2003 domain. But it may take some time to educate my technical support staff on how to manage user accounts in AD 2008. I'd like for them to continue to be able to use Windows 2003 domain tools.

Is this possible and/or prudent?
