I am adding a 2nd Domain Controller which is Wind 2008. I have an existing DC that is also set to IP-Bridgehead. Is it common/okay to make the one I am adding to network also "IP-Bridgehead. In other words "make it also a Preferred Bridgehead Server for IP transport........"

You have two Domain Controllers in your entire environment?  You don't need to configure any bridgehead servers.  You would only configure bridgehead servers to establish a preferred channel of communication between two SITES.  It would act to limit the communication of other domain controllers within each of the two sites so that they don't attempt to talk to servers at the remote site.  If you have only two domain controllers, they HAVE to talk to each other, no matter what...

And if the only two domain controllers in your environment also happen to be in the same site... well, bridgehead servers become even more superfluous.

Raz,

I have 3 Domain Controllers on one site for 1 domain. 2 are Win 2008 and 1 is on 2003 Server. By default one of the 2008 Wind boxes has the Bridgehead configured-IP already. so just leave as is? My "PDC" will be the new 2008 box i just added.

Yes, if you only have the one site, leave it as is -- your configuration won't use a bridgehead.

A bridgehead server will not be used in a configuration with a single site.  There is no issue to be resolved.
