win2K vs win2k3 - group policies and trusts

Strange one here.  We have 2 domains that trust each other.  Let's call them US and IL.  US has the Group Policy that specifies the complex password requirements for the US domain.

We have an old server and a new one.  The old server is win2k and the new one is win2k3.  Both of these servers are member servers in the IL domain.  

The win2k server allows us to create user accounts with passwords of 4 characters (which is outside the complex settings specified from the other trusted domain).  The new server will not allow us to do this (and it needs to allow this for some old legacy DOS workstations).

Please help.

I have done that and see the password policy is coming from the mandatory domain policy from the other domain.  How is the Win2K blocking this?  I wish there was an equivalent to rsop.msc we could run on the win2k server.

They are not in the same forest.  Let me look at the DC for the IL domain
