do i need to make 2003 a special server? both 2000, 2003 are eval editions.
does that matter? Goes thru the steps of trying to load AD (2003) but says
cant find or domain does not exist. i have looked in the KB but to no luck.
not a big deal, but like to know if it is possible...

AD requires DNS.

Set up DNS on the 2000 DC.
See:

When installing the Win 2k3 server point it to the Win 2k DNS server for
DNS.
