Book or Web Site to Assist with AD Setup

Hello

I am currently working on creating a Active Directory Test domain.  I have so far created

2003 domain called let say test.org(no access to internet for now)
DNS
Couple of OUs
users
computers
groups

Does anyone know of a website or book that would give me a step by step recipe on how to do this correctly? I feel that I am now over my head and would appreciate any and all help.  Also create an exchange server (2003 or 2007) too? the easier the better.  Thanks in advance!!
