Win 7 access to 2003 server

Running Win 2003 server, DHCP and DNS, with 180 computers logging into our domain. We primarily are using Win XP Pro, but want to replace some laptops but with Win 7 platform. I have received some ambiguous answers, but will Windows 7 allow me to log into the Win 2003 domain and receive DHCP and DNs? Many thanks!

Yes, assuming you are talking about a version of 7 that has domain abilities. ANy issues you may come across are most likley related to IPV6 and your network configuration rather than the OS itself. I am typing this on a Win 7 Enterprise workstation ona 2003 domain getting my DNS and DHCP address just fine.
