How to add a windows 2008 DC into  the Windows 2003 AD Environment?

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
My network is a Windows 2003 AD Domain. Currently, there is one Windows 2003 DC. I am thinking upgrade the domain to Windows 2008.
Firstly, I am thinking to upgrade one of my Windows 2008 member server as DC, and then, move all 5 FSMO, and others, to this DC. Eventually, Windows 2003 DC will be decommissioned.
How can I do it without problem?
