Hello:

I am running Windows Server 2003 Std, and I am adding a 2012 Server.  I am trying to add as an additional Domain Controller, however when I run the tool, it tells me that the current functional level is 2000 and requires 2003.  

When I go on the 2003 server, into Domains and Trusts, the current Functional Level is 2003.  

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please check the "Forest Functional Level"

 For Domain: Active Directory Users and Computers. Right click on your domain, raise domain functional level.

For Forest: Active Directory Sites and Trusts, right click active directory domains and trusts, raise forest level.
