2008 -> 2003 CAL downgrade

I have Server 2003 with CALs.

If I aquire an additional licence of server 2008 but downgrade the
installation to 2003, are my 2003 CALs valid for the downgraded server?

Re: 2008 -> 2003 CAL downgrade

I assume these are 2003 USER CALs. You do not need to upgrade to 2008 CALs
until the users start connecting to a 2008 OS.

I don't work for MS but I did stay at a Holiday in Express last night so the
answer is Yes.
