How to add SBS2003 server to existing server 2003 standard edition DC

Is it possible to add a new server running SBS2003 to an existing Server 2003 DC?  I went through and setup AD on the new server and joined it to the existing which it did but now it errors out on the setup wizard complaining about the role of the SBS.   From what I have read it doesnt look real promising but I figured I would ask before going out and purchasing a Standard Edition 2003/8 License for this new server and reload it.

The SBS server must hold all the Operations Master Roles and it must be the root of the domain. you can add additional DCs to an SBS doamin. You might be able to do what you are trying to do by transferring all the roles to the SBS machine

Is there any documentation for transferring all of the roles?

Try the following KB article.

I would try this after installing the first stage if the SBS server and before installing the SBS parts.  Run DCPROMO to install AD, then transfer the roles, then install the SBS parts

Thanks for the info...

I have changed the roles to the new SBS server but when I try to continue with the Small Business Server setup it gives me a warning that "Windows Small Business Server 2003 cannot be installed on a domain controller that is not the assigned Operations Master roles."  I have gone through the steps in document to change all 5 roles and had no problems making the change so is there something I have to do to sync the role changes?
