Upgrade From Win 2003 DC to Win 2008 R2

Dear All,

I have two domains (Parent & Child) based on windows 2003. Now I’m planning to upgrade those domains to windows 2008 R2, I need some help to know the following:

1- Do I have to run schema update in both domains?
2- Do I have to upgrade the parent then the child domain?
3- Do I have to keep DC 2003 in parent domain until I finalize upgrading the child domain?
4- Is there a link which can help me doing that?

Thanks

Remember one thing if you have 32 bit version use 32 bit of ADprep32.exe & if you have 64 bit use 64 bit adprep.exe which can be located in windows 2008 Disc.

32 bit & 64 adprep do the same its just platform compatibility.
