Windows 2003 Server -- raise "forest level" error ?

I logged into my Windows 2003 Standard 32bit Server "domain controller" as administrator on the DOMAIN (not local PC), tried to raise the FOREST FUNCTIONAL LEVEL from 2000 to 2003 so it matches the server's DOMAIN FUNCTIONAL LEVEL, and got a "you do not have sufficient privilege to raise the forest functional level" error.

Anyone have possible solutions ?

Make sure that the user you used is -
a member of either the Domain Admins group (in the forest root domain) or the Enterprise Admins group in Active Directory

Steps
 1. logged into DC as administrator on the DOMAIN (not local PC)
 2. opened AD User/Groups
 3. tried to add the below per your suggestion
 4. get "you do not have permission to modify the group ROOT/TLD/Users/Enterprise Admins" ... error

How can I find out which administrator type account
can grant my administrator account access to this ?
