I'm about to add a win 2003 DC to a windows 2000 domain.  I've just run adprep on the PDC and there is one other win 2000 DC.  Do I need to run adprep on that one as well?

No you just need to run adprep /forestprep and adprep /domainprep from the server 2003 disk on one of the Windows 2000 domain controllers.

Did forget... the adprep /forestprep should be run on the windows 2000 schema operations master and the adprep /domainprep should be run on the windows 2000 infrastructure operations master.  These might be the same DC or, if you do have multiple DCs, they could be on different ones. To identify which DC has which FSMO role refer to the following:

Drop down to the section about transferring the roles via the GUI apps and that will tell you how to see which DC has which role.
