1. It should have no effect, Win2k AD was as shoddy as Win2k3 at doing
LDAP. The interface from outside should be the same.

2. Upgrade the base functionality to 2003. It only takes a few clicks
and if you have no Win2k/NT machines it will make no difference to the
network, it will simple give you extra functionality that you can choose
to use or not.
