How do I sysprep a server that is running server 2003 operating system? Is this the same as syspreping a XP box?

Yup, the process are similar.

For Windows 2003, my suggestion for you before syspreping is to update to service pack 2 first. It have the update version of system preparation tools.

One more thing, please remember to UNCHECKED the “Don’t regenerate security identifiers” option when creating sysprep to ensure SID generated is unique, else you have to use Sysinternal NewSID to force your system to generate new SID when installed. Having same SID will broken your system especially when it is a DC.
