How to create domain in Windows Server 2008 R2

I'm setting up a new domain controller with Windows Server 2008 R2. How do I create a new domain (as if it's going in to a new network/location)? Thanks!

Ouch, sounds like fun.

If this is a new forest/domain, run the system manager tool and add the Active Directory Services (something like that anyway) role, then run "dcpromo".

Remember to install/configure DNS when it asks.

Tutorial here;
