I am newbie have an NT Server with a single domain called NTDOMAIN and Exch5.5 working fine.   In order to upgrade to Exch2000 I need to setup Active Directory on the network.

I took another server and installed W2KAdvServer and created a new Domain? called W2KSERV using Active Directory.  (well I say Domain because it looks like a domain to NT)

Is this a domain - a tree or a forest - I am new to active directory

It is the root domain........and the only one at this point in your AD forest........and probably the only one you will need.

I would suggest that you do some serious reading before you get yourself into a world of trouble.  A google on active directory or active directory basics will yield a wealth of info, for instance:

while studying, pay a large amount of attention to DNS....it is critical to AD.
