I have a single forest with three child domains. Two of the children domains have Exchange 2003 servers installed, the third does not. It is a brand new domain and a few of the users need Exchange email boxes. I need to create mailboxes for them on an Exchange server in one of the other child domains but I don't know if I need to run the Exchange /DomainPrep on the new domain or just create a RUS entry for the new domain to do this.

The reason for running domainprep is to prepare the domain to store exchange attributes in AD. You need to run domainprep in every domain that contains mailboxes.
