either this forest includes domain controllers that are not running the appropriate version of Windows,
or one or more domains in the forest are still at Window 2000 mixed functional level or Windows Server 2003 interim

Current Forest Level
Windows Server 2003

Can anyone provide any advice on how to get around this?
