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?

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

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.

If you are not familiar, follow this blog post: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/data-center/how-to-perform-four-common-tasks-in-windows-server-2012/

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.
