[Samba] making MS server 2003 a domain member server

I have been researching (google, o'reilly and
samba.org) intensely for the past 3 weeks learning
about samba and setting up my first successful samba
3.10 domain. So I am still very new to this. Am I
right when I assume that a domain member server helps
with authentication? My company wants to migrate the
current windows 2000 server over to the new samba 3
server I created. So this will be our main file and
print server. But for client backups we need to keep
our backup server Windows. I just installed server
2003 on that machine. Can I add the server 2003
machine as a domain member server of the samba 3
domain, and if so how would I do that? Would that 2003
server then help with authentication? I am not using
ldap just a simple samba3 with smbpasswd domain.
