Situation:
I have a DC in Dallas that I want to replicate with a DC in Lancaster. How do I set them up to where they will do this over a WAN link?

I've never done this, so detailed explanations would be most appreciated.

Yes, Windows 2000 DCs are maent to do this. This is one of their best  features to replcate AD over WAN links, even slow ones.

You accomplish this using AD Sites and Services.

I would read up about AD Sites and Services here:

I hope this helps

Well I have two domain controllers in Dallas, and the third is in Lancaster... will the above article still apply? (*I haven't had time to read it yet*)

All in all, you can defintely replicate. It depends on the equiment and means by which you communicate from site to site to decide how often and what you replicate. You will have to take into careful consideration the equipment used, etc...
