I really recommend you do some study on this, if you are doing a production environment.
If you know how to do Windows 2003 you will have not much difficulty.

However:
Microsoft provides this add for you in Windows 2008.
Install Windows 2008.
In the server Manager choose to add the Domain Controller Role, make new domain
This gives your domain a name and a sets up a DNS server (Microsoft will suggest you do this).
Add the DHCP role.
Set your workstations to get an IP address and DNS server automatically (Control Panel, Network)
Right click on my computer on each workstation and use the comptuer nameing wizard to join the domain.
