You will just want to have 2 Domain controllers on your network.  With 2003 they did away with the concept of Primary and Backup domain controllers.  Here is a walkthrough from microsoft on how to do htis.

Just be aware that the new server being installed as a domain controller will still allow people to login, it will not help if you lose the exchange services and such like.
