Running Exchange 2010 Schema Preparation

Environment: Forest and Domain functional levels at Windows 2003, one exchange server and one domain.
A few weeks back I ran the schema update in preparation to bring Exchange 2007 into the existing Exchange 2003 org.....the two versions will need to co-exist for a period of time.
The update ran successfully, and I get a clean report from ExBPA and the 2007 readiness check.
I've since decided to skip the 2007 install and go straight to Exchange 2010.
After running the Exchange 2010 Pre-Deployment Analyzer, of course it tells me that the schema needs to be updated for Exchange 2010.....
Any gotchas I should be aware of since I've already run the Exchange 2007 schema update ?
Logically, I'm thinking I'll be OK running the setup /PrepareSchema for Exchange 2010 ??
Any insight would be appreciated......thank you.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

yes it is ok to run the /prepareschema for exchange 2010 you don't have anything to worry about

Just keep in mind that once you install your first 2010 exchange server you can no more install exchange 2007 in your organization
