Can I administer a 10.5 server from a 10.7 computer?

    I've always administered my PPC server computer from a powerbook on 10.5, but I'd much prefer to do it from my main laptop running 10.7. Is it possible to either force the install of the 10.5 admin tools on lion, or will the lion admin tools play nice with an old 10.5 server?

    I run the 10.7 'Server Admin Tools' on Lion and can administer my 10.5 server using 'Server Admin' with no issues. I don't use Workgroup Manager to connect to 10.5, however i do use it to connect to 10.6 and that works just as well too. I can only guess it would work ok.
