No you can't have that, one domain per Windows server installation.
You could have one box and have multiple virtual machines running on the box so you could have multiple DC's/Domains that way but each virtual machine would be its own Windows Installation.
Thanks

I need to create a second domain because we brought a new companny and we are going to host their exchange account. Also eventually we are going to put an AD server on this site for files and authentication. Both site are going to be in the same forest.
