You should not have any problems with Windows 7 machines on a 2003 domain. You may have to test your log in scripts (map drives) and tweak group policy settings but things should work fine.

I have recently have deployed several new and upgraded Windows 7 machines on a 2003 (Mixed Mode!) domain.  No problems at all.

I can also confirm that we're using a lot of Windows 7 Enterprise PC's with our Windows Server 2003 Native Domain.
