Adding Server2012 to SBS2003 domain

I have an application server running Server2012 which I need to add to a SBS 2003 domain.  The 2012 server will not be running any services, other than those required by the applications.  I have been unable to add it so far using the connectcomputer web interface.
After I click 'Connect to the network now'  a blank page opens.  I am not prompted to run the nshelp file.  I already checked that DNS is set to the server, and added the site to trusted sites list, and am running IE in compatibility mode.
What am I missing?  How do I add the computer to the domain?

The wizard would indeed probably don't understand windows server 2012, but you can just join a server or computer to a domain using System Properties.

Just join it thru Computer properties, just like you would do it on win 2003, win 2008, win 7.

Good enough.  I hesitated to do that because of the golden rule of SBS which is to "Use the Wizards"  Server is joined now.  Thanks.
