If you introduce a 2003 or R2 domain controller into a Windows 2000 Active Directory domain, you are upgrading the domain to 2003/R2. This includes running a forestprep and domainprep process to extend the AD schema and prepare the domain for a 2003/R2 domain controller. Check knowledge base article 325379 for more details.
