I have a domain name on the internet, lets say its called, comp1234.com, this site has a website associated to it.  My server name is srvw2k8,  I've installed windows server 2008 and have started the install of dcpromo.  When it says "Create a new domain in a new forest and supply the FQDN" do i input comp1234.com or local.comp1234, which do i use.

Thanks

(Actually you could make it ANYTHING.local, doesn't have to match the .com name at all.)

Yes what i was looking for was just for ad install and not a web server.  I will make it comp1234.local.  Thanks.
