BDC isn't used anymore,
In a 2008 Domain we only talk about Operation Master,
You can change that by AD users and computers, right click your domain name and select 'operation master'

That's right. Now, there are no PDC and BDC. Everything what you want to do is transfer FSMO from one server to another and make it also Global Catalog. Then you have "BDC as PDC" and "PDC as BDC" :)

How to ... you can find here

Like everyone has said there is not a PDC or BDC anymore all DCs are multi-master systems. If you want to move your FSMO roles over to another DC iSiek has supplied the steps.

Now root domain and children domains are different then PDC and BDC maybe you are talking about that.

see my planing is i want create one primary domain controller in one location and second server is another location that is backup domain controller (only read only copy of database) now they both servers should sync between each to other suppose if i m creating one user  on PDC the user should be sync with BDC and user login able to login in BDC network and thats i want only.so please suggest me step of making BDC domain.

Here are the step by step guides on adding an additional Domain Controller. The read-only option is not a good option if you want to ever failover to the secondary DC if you primary goes down. You want to just add an additional DC.

This is for 2003 but the same steps are for 2008.

Run dcdiag to check for errors.

Make sure you are only pointing to internal DNS servers.

When you DC that holds the FSMO roles goes down you will see this type of issues.

Make sure you are pointing the second DC to itself for DNS as primary
