2003 Server in 2008 function level domain

I have an exchange 2003 server which is currently on a W2k3 server.  I understand Exchange 2003 will not sit on a W2k8 box, and at the moment I do not wish to upgrade to Exchange 2007.
However, I do wish to upgrade my DC's to W2k8 and raise the domain functional level to 2008.

So in essence, my question is fairly simple, can I have a 2008 domain with a 2003 member server on it?  (And will Exchange 2003 work ok).

yes, it will work. You need to prep your forest and domain before you can have a 2008 DC in a 2003 domain.
