A question of servers--NT4.0 on Windows 2003 Communicating?

  1. I work at a middle school. The server for our school is NT4.0 (what can I say?... the district has a limited budget), but the special education department has their own server that runs a special ed program that 10 computers are networked to.

    The NT Server has a domain and every student (900+) has their own login name, network folder, et cetera. I can do that no problem. I manage the NT server.

    The principal wants me to create another '10 computer' lab for special education. The computers will have Windows 2000 pro. Is there a way to set it up so they can log on to their NT domain and still have permission_access to the windows 2003 Server so they can run the program? Or will they need to log on as different users depending on if they are doing regular school work (and need the NT server) or the special education program?

    I did not set up the 2003 Server and have never touched it. So I have no experience with 2000 or 2003 servers, active directories..if it can access domains...et cetera.

    EDIT: In the original 10 computer special ed lab, the students don't log on to the NT server domain. I would like to change that if I can get the new lab set up how I want it....if it is even possible.

    First off what is the windows 2003 server going to be running? Are you starting a new domain with this windows 2003 box or is it going to join the NT domain?
