Two Active Directory domains on same AD server?

If we have two companies (one new company name and one old transitioning over).

Is it possible to have two seperate login domains and users within one AD server? never mind about security concerns or best practices. This is a transition.

Any comments? Thanks.

No.  A single install can ONLY be a DC in one domain.  If you want to run VMs, that's fine, then you could have two domains on two server installs.

The servers are WIndows Server 2008 with minimum Forest at Windows Server 2003. Actually there are only 4 AD servers and all are Windows 2008.
