-------------------------------------------------------Thanks for the quick 
reply.... just to reiterate... I can have 2 Global
Catalog servers on the network... one of them windows 2000 DC w/ Exchange
2000 and another with Windows 2003 R2 SP2 and all the FSMO roles on the w2k3
server and still install Exchange 2007 on the network?

Thanks much!
Lee

-------------------------------------------------------you can demote the
GC.

not all GC's in the site have to be win2k3sp1. just at least 1.

do NOT dcpromo the ex2k3 dc.
this will break exchange.

you will need a win2k3 sp1  schema master dc BEFORE prepping for ex2k7

hope this helps
