MySQL and Active Directory on same server

I currently have a Windows 2000 server (no Active Directory) running MySQL. Will there be any problems if I install Active Directory? Can they coexist on the same server?

Active Directory and MySQL will co-exist just fine on a server. While the two cannot share authentication information, they do not disrupt eachother.
