I currently run Windows 2000 native mode AD, while all of mine Domain Controllers are Windows 2003 R2. I'm about to go to Windows 2008 Active Directory. Some of my servers (non-DC) are running Windows 2000 OS. Would they still be able to be domain members.
Also what about Windows 2000 Workstations?

Yes I believe they can join the domain but they may not "understand" newer group policies from the 2008 AD.

Yes why not. They should only not have any DC role.
