Additional Server

Hi,
 
   We already have a server in place and would like to add an additional server. I have done a fresh installation of windows 2000 Server and was wondering how I should go about setting up the active directory for this new server?

Run DCPROMO - that should do it.

should I set the active directory as a child node or an additional domain controller?

Do you want to create a new domain?  Is there any reason to?  Is this second server in a different location (office in another part of town or the country or the world?)  Generally, unless you are going to have different offices and different people managing them, you won't create a new domain.  Just make it a Domain controller.
