Query-based distribution group creation fails in Server 2003

Whenever I'm in ADUC and try to create a query-based distribution group, I get the following error:

A creation wizard for this object type could not be found.  A generic creation wizard will be used instead.  The object that is created may not be useful to the application that normally creates these objects.  (OK button)

What pops up then is what looks like a dialog box taken from ADSI Edit.  The title bar reads:
New Object - msExchDynamicDistributionList
Attribute: cn
Attribute type: Unicode String
cn:
(textbox)

I'm sure there's a way to go into ADSI Edit and create the distribution list the hard way, but does anyone have any ideas on how to fix the object creation wizard for the query-based dist group?  Nothing shows up in the Directory Services event log.

Thanks but that's the process I try to use to create the group.  When I right-click the appropriate OU I'm trying to place the group in, the error comes up.

More information:

I have two DCs both running Server 2003 64-bit in 2003 native mode.  My Exchange server is running 2007 Enterprise on a 2003 64-bit machine.  The Exchange server is a dedicated server in the same domain as the DC.  I am logged in as the administrator.
