First and foremost you need to know what level your current domain is in
If you are already at 2003 domain
then you can only add 2003 servers
Personally I have no idea why you would want a 2000 server?
Spend the money on the upgrade license you will be way ahead of the game
If not, just build the 2000 box, add to domain, run dc promo, setup as 2nd DNS, and WINS server too, make sure they replicate correctly.(DNS,WINS.AD)
